Here is Alaska we are starting to feel the chill in the air. It will be my first time wintering chickens. I really don't know what to expect and frankly I am kinda worried. Our temps here are anywhere from 32 to below 20 depending on what winter month it is with the coldest being in Jan, Feb. I was wondering what chickens do in the winter. Do they venture out side much or do they mostly stay inside the coop? Do they still dust bathe if they have the loose dirt available? Do their appetites decrease or increase? If you have any info or suggestions please share. Thanks.
