The Safe and Effective Way to Heat Your Chicken Coop This Winter

The Safe and Effective Way to Heat Your Chicken Coop This Winter

Should You Heat Your Chicken Coop This Winter?

If you and your chickens live anywhere where the temperature drops below freezing then you should absolutely heat your chicken coop this winter! Although chickens are better adapted to the cold than we are, it is still very important that your chickens are kept warm. According to the experts at Countryside Daily: "Just like us, a chicken’s body prioritizes its functions. High on the list are functions like circulating blood, breathing and other life-critical purposes. Guess what is last on that list … making eggs. When a bird’s needs are met, production is rampant, but when faced with conditions like extreme cold, you’ll have an answer to the why have my chickens stopped laying. Bottom line: Cold weather can cause a drastic reduction in egg production." Even if your chickens are producing eggs, the eggs need to be kept warm enough to keep from freezing themselves. On top of that, your chicken's water will need to be kept warm to keep from freezing as well. Last, but certainly not least heating your chicken coop is essential for keeping them happy and alive through the winter.

Should I Buy a Heat Lamp for my Chicken Coop?

The short answer is absolutely not. While buying a heat lamp for your chicken coop seems like a good solution at first, it turns out that heat lamps are actually MUCH more dangerous for your chickens than the cold itself. The surface temperature of a standard heat lamp easily reaches above 480°f, and heat lamps have caught countless barns and chicken coops on fire in the past.
