Even More Cold-Hardy Chicken Breeds To Consider

Have had snow and ice on the ground since Dec. 17, and our Barred Rocks have done extremely well. Egg production has been slow a few of the real frigid days, but I am satisfied with their ability to handle cold weather. Coop is unheated with natural light, feed is available for free feeding. I change out their water daily as dictated to keep it ice and “dirt” free.



I found my Buckeyes to be very cold-tolerant, laying eggs in an unheated coop in temps hovering just above zero degrees Fahrenheit and there also was no artificial lighting provided.
