    I just was given 8 blue Wheaton old English batams I live in the northern pan handle it gets pretty bad here in the winter how well does this type of breed do in winter or should I make a little pen in the garage? I have a nice coop that is weather hardy so there's no wind or anything that can get in. Thanks in advanc for advice:)

    If they are grown and you have a coop then they should be alright. I'd put hay or something down just because their feet can get frost bite... but I wouldn't worry too much.

    I'm sure they will =) they cuddle together for warmth... as long as they can keep dry and there is enough of them they will manage!
