On very cold nights, or for the first few nights as they adjust to their new coop, they may require a small lamp for ambient light and warmth. Chickens should have access to a chicken coop for sleeping and laying eggs. Close them up in their coop at every night at dusk to protect them from common chicken predators, and open the coop again after dawn. The coop should have roosts for them to perch on for sleeping, and nesting boxes for laying eggs (approximately one box for every four chickens). For more information on keeping chickens, read through some of our helpful blog posts:
