    How long should I keep the heat lamp on in the winter for the chickens? Should I keep it on until February, March, April......May? Can a chicken lay eggs in the winter? And should I feed my chickens warm water in the winter or cooler water?

    Head over to the Managing Your Flock section of the forum. They can help you out with all your questions.

    You shouldn't keep a heat lamp. Yes, they lay in the winter, but not as much. And unfrozen water (warm or cool doesn't matter so much).

    Good luck.
