What a stunning Wedding Gift it would make. http://ForsythiaHill.etsy.com.

The Forsythia is starting to bloom on Forsythia Hill in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Whisk winter away…

At least one more week of cold temperatures in Charlottesville, Virginia. Tomorrow it will be 20 degrees below normal for this time of year!
I’m glad the little Purple Crocus is in bloom to remind me Spring IS around the corner.
Large breed adult chickens are rather hardy stock - they also have many feathers to keep them warm. My girls are large stock, Leghorns and Comets. A house protecting them from the elements is a must (no leaks) but some vent holes near the top of coop roof is also important.
Most large breeds can withstand temps even below 15 - 20 degrees. In Central VA on a typical winter evening, it does not get that low but it can happen.
We wrapped the interior of our coop with black plastic to help insulate and draw in heat from the sun during the day (through the 2 large windows) leaving small vent holes open at the very top.
I have a heat lamp but I worry all night it might catch fire so only use it when temps drop below 18 degrees. It is more to make me feel better about them being outside alone in the cold rather than they would die w/out it.
Young chickens and even some small breeds require supplemental heat at temps below 25-30 degrees or you can risk death.
Tip toe in the snow.
My chickens are not thrilled about having to walk on something COLD!
