Take the water out imo. Moisture is the #1 cause of frostbite.i have not read this thread yet but i know there's a lot of chicken advice here....what are you seasoned chicken keepers doing for your birds this weekend? i'm keeping mine inside their coop. moved their food and water inside the coop as well.
i was also wondering about wireless thermometers......i need one that can cover the distance from house to coop (100 feet) plus be able to penetrate 2 walls (1 on coop and 1 on house). what do you have that works?
I threw in a $40 radiant heater from TSC. Dont think they NEED it but made the wife happy.
Also covered their roosting area with another 2 layers (bed sheet + tarp). Guess we'll find out in the morning how well i did
