I did my research about chicken coop heat because I wanted to buy something safe. Here’s what I did and some installation pictures.
Here’s how I plan to keep snow (and surface wind) out of the chicken pen area during the stormy winter.
Chicken feed for winter… How much do you need? How to store it? Here are my calculations from real world experience…

It was so exciting to finally get our fist egg! Now we’re up to 6 eggs several days later. These ISA-Brown chickens are starting to produce!
I finally got around to setting up the fenced-in range for the chickens. It surrounds their coop and its attached run area.

We recently picked up 7 chicks with the intent of raising them for egg laying production for our household. Would you like to follow along?
