Winterizing the Hen House

Once the overnight temperatures dropped into the upper 30's, I installed a heat lamp in the hen house again. But it just wasn't making much difference on the inside temperature. So I decided to install some "shutters" on the sides of the hen house. That made a BIG difference, nearly 10 degrees warmer with the heat lamp on (that's the pretty red glow).

I'm sure the girls are much happier now, especially given that last night's overnight temperature dropped to 29 degrees!
