Winterizing Your Chicken Coop

Becky shows you how to winterize a chicken coop. She starts by demolishing her old chicken coop and rebuilding it using corral boards. Corral boards are great because they’re pressure treated for the outdoors and they’re pretty affordable.

The whole idea to winterizing your chicken coop is to protect your chicken from the wind, rain, and snow. They’ll grow in thicker downy feathers, so as long as you can keep them dry and safe from the wind they can make it through the winter.

Becky also talks about how if she lived in a colder climate she would put a window in her chicken coop because chickens need sunlight. And she would keep the chickens in the coop all the time during the coldest months.
