Thanks, Shirley! They should be just fine even without the added heat; it helps make sure their waterer doesn't freeze, and encourages them to keep laying during short daylight hours. The chicken door is left open at night, but the pen is pretty tight against critters. Not long after we got the top put on, I spotted a hawk perched on it, but it couldn't get in, LOL!

Oh yeah, Heidrun, we've had the heat on in the human house the last few days as well. I can usually turn it off in the afternoons when the sun is shining in through the windows and sliding glass doors. Thanks for commenting!

Thanks, Jim, Gene, and Delana! The heat source is a red-light lamp designed for the purpose. The extra hours of light also encourage the chickens to keep laying during the short daylight months.
