Chilly chook

Recommended Posts

Over the past few months some of my chooks have died, old age, and other different things, anyway this has left me with just one chook. Rather annoyingly she has decided to moult and is looking a bit threadbare. She is currently on her own at night on the eglu until some new friends arrive in 2 weeks. 

 

Any suggestions how to keep her a bit warmer while she's on her own.

I'm in a similar situation except I have 2 small pekins. I'm just hoping they will snuggle together and keep each other warm, but I'm not sure they do.

If you have electric near by you could put a tube heater or seed tray heater in the coop.

Your banties should be OK, unless it get REALLY cold. 

I would avoid heating in coops - it encourages condensation and you would need so much more ventilation to cope with this and the heat. Don't forget that chooks have a body temperature of 105deg, and they are wearing thick duvets.
