I hope this is the right place to post, it was either here or feeding and watering... anyhows this is the first winter I've had chickens and the worst winter we've had in awhile as far as cold weather. I have 10 small pens just big enough for pairs trios or quads and 2 pretty good size runs one has my older chickens I hatched back in the summer and another on that has fall chickens... anyhows I'm looking for an easier way to winter them as far as water goes. I've heard many people talk about them not having their chickens speperated in there pairs during the winter so I'm assuming they put them all together. I'm just wonder how that would work for me. Ive got a few different types of OEGB, brown leghorn batams, cochin bantams and japanese black tails right I have 70 +/- right now.. I know I'd have to have a pretty good sized lot for that many but I dont plan on having that many this winter... I just wonder how bad mine would fight and how much of an aggrivation it would be... cant be worse than what I do now... I love breakin water every morning before work...ugh!!!!!
