I live in Wisconsin, and I dont heat my coop. I guess I figure it's survival of the fittest. It has been well below zero many nights. So far, they are all ok. They all look so big and beautiful with their extra feathers. I THINK they grow some extra feathers to keep themselves warmer.

One thing I have thought about is working at a ski hill. I think the "kids" that work there would work AFTER school, and you could work during the school hours. Summer, obvioulsy the hill would be closed. The only snag would be the weekends. But maybe the kids could go with Dad on the weekends...
That is a huge savings every month then! I line dry clothes in the summer, but never really in the winter. My present goal is not to use the dryer for the month of Jan.

How did I KNOW the No Carb Queen would comment? :lol:
It's just what I do when we have spaghetti or tacos or something like that.
