Chickens And Cold or Freezing Temperatures

Caring for chickens in the wintertime is perhaps one of the most important times to care for your hens. If you are new to raising chickens, you likely have a few questions about chickens and cold or freezing temperatures. 

How you go about this, and even if you have been raising chickens for a while, there is always an opportunity to learn something new. 

Below I will answer a few common questions about cold temperatures and how it impacts your flock.


  1. I have a large coop for my chickens (about 30), its dry and wind resistant building. Most of the chickens sleep in an outside roost regardless of weather conditions. Wet, snow, hot, cold, windy... We keep Buff Orppingtons who range all day, all year. South Eastern Indiana.

  2. Well, if you cook them first, the cold will not be a problem.
