Durham Hens of­fers th­ese tips: “If you have a wooden coop, give it a coat of preser­va­tive to help it through the win­ter months. A good clean of your coop gives you the chance to check it over and make any re­pairs that are needed. If you don’t think it will last an­other year, re­place it now. Also take time to check out your hens. They find win­ter stress­ful too. Treat them for worms and ex­ter­nal par­a­sites if they haven’t been done for a while. A lit­tle mixed corn as a treat and a splash of poul­try tonic in their water will help them when it gets colder.” MORE:
