New chicken mama here and our little flock of 6 bantam ladies are approaching their first winter. IT'S COLD OUT THERE! My girls are about 8 months old at this point. So, their "luxury condo" is insulated, I'm giving them warm water a couple of times a day and plenty of corn to fatten them up. I have both a felt backed table cloth and an outdoor rug covering the house part of their home (they have a run/play yard that is not covered). No matter what warm food I put out there, they have had no interest in it so far. I've tried a hot mash of their pellets, oatmeal (with milk and with water), various leftovers (mac and cheese, chunky soup) and even some warmed up yogurt (cause they love yogurt). They don't show a lick of interest. AND laugh all you want, but I am seriously considering making them little fleece capes that tie on... I saw on another site that someone had knitting their girls some ponchos. Any experience with something like that? I hate clothes on animals, but I also hate to see them so cold. Other warming ideas? We have no electricity out there for light. Thaks!
