Chicken Coops and Cozy Legs

Chicken Coops and Cold Weather

When colder seasons hit, chicken coops may need to be warmed up by a few degrees. According to the Chicken Chick, chickens are able to regulate their body temperatures much better than humans. However, she continues, “if absolutely necessary to add a few degrees to the inside of the chicken coop in the winter, utilize a safe heat source such as a flat panel radiant heater that brings the temperatures up just a few degrees. There should not be a drastic difference between the outside temperatures and temperatures inside the coop.”

Consequences of Choosing the Wrong Chicken Coop Heater

Safety and power are two important factors to consider before deciding the proper device for slightly warming chicken coops. Traditional space heaters are known for their dangerous risk of starting fires. If an unsafe heater is used, it can lead to a number of hazardous scenarios.  In addition, as mentioned previously, a heat that is too strong for the chickens can hinder their ability to adapt to outside temperatures.
