    Their feathers are quite good at insulating them. As long as you have a dry, draft free coop with good ventilation (to remove excess moisture from respiration and whatnot) then your chickens should be just fine!

    They warm themselves, don't need any help.

    The colder it gets, the more they fluff up their feathers increasing their ability to insulate. Provide them with plentiful feed, water, a clean/dry well ventilated but draft free coop, and they will be fine.
