Winter-proofing the coop and run

We have learned a lot about keeping chickens over the winter. As I've mentioned a time or two (or three), the winters here are tough. Luckily, so are my hens.

We do wrap their run in plastic so they can get out most days.

We do put fall leaves in the run on soggy days.

We do have a heat lamp in their coop.

We have a heated water container in their coop.

Oh, and a they have a pull-out couch.

Full bar, too.

Just kidding. But everyone needs help getting through the winter.

Jim wrapping the run in plastic. The scarecrow was not my idea.
It was in the back seat of my car after I leant it to my Dad for a day. Dads.
