IT FROZE! Are the Meat Chickens OK???

Published on August 9, 2017

IT’S WINTER & IT”S COLD!!! And here is this how we raised we Raise Meat Chickens In The WINTER on our homestead.

The temps are finally dropping here in Alabama, & we have never raised pastured meat chickens this late, but the weather has been so warm, that we decided to roll the dice & raise just one more batch before the year was over!

Was really worried about the cornishes, the meat chickens, bc they are outside, on pasture, and also bc cornishes are so young too…I was worried they might get too cold & I would lose some! Well we covered the chicken tractors on with plastic(Cheap painter’s plastic) & also hung up a heat light, And it seemed to have worked very well!

We were getting temps in the mid-20’s at night this winter, and the painter’s plastic with the combo of the heat lamp, it has worked really well…so far!!

We plan on processing these meat chickens hopefully the week before Christmas, weather pending!!

Hoping this video was helpful, especially for beginner homesteaders or someone just starting a homestead.
