    I live in england and i have been keeping sebrights for a couple of months now and I really love them!
    For the winter I am going to bring them in the house ...
    But I don't know when ... I was thinking the middle of October to about beginning of Febuary?
    Any other ideas ? (Thats when its coldest - frost ...)
    Also I was going to make a triangular run with a wooden floor to keep them in ...
    Something like this but a bit bigger :
    Will this be ok ?

    what are your temps like in the winter? i wintered my sebright flock outdoors last winter (i have since sold them) but the coop was not insulated and we got down to -5 for a few weeks, i had 7 of them and they were just fine huddling together on their perch. My sebrights had quite the nasty dispositions and were mean to each other in their 10X20 run w/ attatched coop, i think they would have killed each other in anything smaller, but if you just have a trio that gets along or something i dont see why a smallish A-frame like those photographed couldnt work for you.
