    I know that is just leaving but we are wondering how to keep our small batch of 6 hens cozy during the cold winter months.
    Our coop is well insulated, and we have a heated water bowl for them. But what else should we do? This is the first kick, at having hens and we are enjoying them, and want to make sure that they are well cared for.[​IMG]

    They carry their own down comforters, and as long as their coop is dry and draft free, and they are well fed and hydrated they will do fine.
