Those of you with chickens, how do you prevent frostbite in those really bitter winter months?
I have to 100w, red spot lights that are doing some good, but are there other things you suggest?
I read that putting up a cheap emergency "space" (foil) blanket above the roosts helps keep the heat down. Anyone tried this or have other ideas?
We just started keeping chickens and have used Reflectix, which is foil-faced bubble wrap. It reflects and has a higher r-value than the emergency blanket alone. Our hens have been out in single digits with no trouble. It hasn't gotten too far below zero, though.
