Hey so I have some 8 month old chickens: 2 buff Orpington, 1 Plymouth Rock, 1 Easter egger, and 1 Ameraucauna. It is supposed to get down to 20* Fahrenheit at night soon and I was wondering what to do to make sure they won’t be too cold. Thanks!

As mentioned, it's all about keeping them dry and out of drafts. It's okay to have leakage around windows and doors as long as it doesn't create a draft that's strong enough to open feathers. The more ventilation, the better. Keeping open waterers out of the coop is also a good idea as is removing the nightly poop load and not overcrowding your coop.

Is your coop nice and dry but with good ventilation @Alby Farms ?
Pics would help....and knowing....
Where in this world are you located?
Climate, and time of year, is almost always a factor.
Please add your general geographical location to your profile.
It's easy to do, and then it's always there!
