Cold snap

We have an Eglu Omlet chicken coop with 4 chickens. We are expecting a cold snap tonight down to 28 deg F. Do we need to cover the coop with a blanket or take other measures to keep them warm?

I wouldn’t worry too much about 28 F. If you close the coop, they’ll keep themselves warm. We had -10 Celsius last winter for a week, which is about 14 F and I did use the winter cover (well insulation lining, which preceded the insulation cover), but I had only 3 small bantams then.
