In the Brooder
- Mar 17, 2013
I live in the northern part of maine, where we get quite a bit of snow, and temperatures drop below 0 for long periods of time. I read an article stating that with the proper breeds, that you only need insulate you chicken coop and provide air flow at the top to prevent the inside from becoming too humid, you wont need a heating lamp inside. I just wanted to get some feed back from others who know what chickens need during the cold winter months to keep them happy and health. I have Buff Orpingtons and Red Sexlinks, which I was told were good breeds for the cold. Any info is appreciated.
