Question: Have you ever tried wintering chickens in a barn? Are there downdides to doing do? We have a lot of extra space in our barn. I can imagine creating a large indoor run for winter. It is unheated, but it would allow the chickens plenty of room to mill about without worrying about snow, ice, and wind. Any thoughts? The barn has a concrete floor so some sort of bedding in the run would be necessary. Any recommendations?
