Winterizing Your Flock; Preparing Poultry for Winter

Winterizing Your Flock; Preparing Poultry for Winter
Add to Favorites With winter approaching we need to prepare for the extra cold and damp weather, the early dark nights and all the other dark sides to winter weather. Here in the U.K. we do not have the varied winters that seem to be quite common in the U.S. I realize that with the size of the U.S. the difference from one end of the country to the other can vary from minus 30° to warm, sunny weather. I cannot imagine minus 30° as we tend only to suffer light frosts and rain with damp, foggy days. Even when it freezes here it does not last for long periods. Predator Protection Is #1 Concern Whether the temperatures are mild or extreme we all need to put extra poultry management into practice during the winter. The prime consideration is in keeping the birds in a good, solid and well-protected poultry unit.
