Well, here in Vermont we're still waiting for the snow, but it's getting colder and the days are at their shortest. When winter looms, your birds may face frozen combs, dropped or nonexistent egg production, chilling, and frostbitten toes. But it doesn't have to be this way. By providing your hens with a ventilated, yet warm and toasty coop with roosting poles, you can keep them comfortable. Treats don't hurt, either. And consider whether lighting your coop for continued winter egg production is the right choice for you.
