Feathered Friends Through Frost: Your Cotswold Chickens Winter Guide

As the days shorten and temperatures dip, our feathered friends need a little extra TLC. But fear not, flock guardians! We've gathered expert tips and cozy essentials to keep your coop clucking merrily all winter long.

Brrrrr-illiant Shelter:

  • Insulate with love: Layer up bedding with hemp, creating a fluffy haven for burrowing beaks.
  • Draft busters unite: Seal tiny cracks with weatherproofing, ensuring precious heat stays indoors.
  • Sunshine soakers: Position your coop to catch the winter sun's warmth, making their mornings extra chirpy.

Feasting in the Cold:

  • Fuel those engines: Up the protein content in their feed, boosting energy for chilly adventures.
  • Porridge: Treat them to a morning feast of lukewarm Oats with added active yoghurt, a welcome warmer on frosty days.
  • Sprouted sensations: Fresh sprouts offer a nutritional boost and keep beaks busy on quiet days.

Keeping the Fun Feathered:

  • Boredom busters: Hang leafy greens, pine cones, or veggie scraps for stimulating pecking games.
  • Dust bath delights: Provide covered dust baths for preening and parasite control, even in the snow.
  • Coop Olympics: Create indoor obstacles with branches, cardboard boxes, or hay bales for some feathery fitness fun.

Remember, happy hens make healthy hens! With a little winter wonder from Cotswold Chickens, your flock will face the frost with feathers fluffed and spirits high.
