Feathers are the warmest type of insulation. Besides that gradually introducing colder temps so they can adjust. And keep them dry and away from wind. Also may need more calories as they will have heat making metabolic needs as well as normal maintenance requirements.
Best advice is to just keep coming back and asking questions. No stupid questions. We are all learning here - or at least we should all be learning from each other. Glad to have you aboard and I'm looking forward to watching your story unfold.
just close any windows on your coupe. I Drilled 1 inch holes along the top of my coupe to let in fresh air and also a small screened gable vents to allow for fresh air without the wind. if you have a floor start the winter with a nice thin layer of pine shavings and slowly add more as the winter goes on as it will freeze as hard as a rock as it absorbs moisture. you won't get it out until spring!!! I also put a light in the coupe with a timer 12 hrs on 12hrs off. and I have a water heater there are several types you can pick the one that suits you best. I live in southern NH so my winters are similiar to yours
Awesome those are very good suggestions. And does anyone know of any doors or flaps that I can use for the winter to keep the wind out and keep them warm. Cuz I don't have a door and they just go in at night and out in the morning by themselves. Cuz im not there every night to let them up in and out in the morning .... any suggestions?
I know they have automatic doors available. At the moment your poultry are kinda "sitting ducks" for any predators. I'd definately look into some kind of door and protection from above. Just my viewpoint.
