When my dad went and got some chickens to raise for our family farm that we all have, he really wasn’t entirely thinking, because the temperatures outside are quite chilly that time of the year when he chose to do it, then all of us around the house were unable to put the chickens outside for many months, because of the chilly temperatures that were happening. Instead, our dad set up the incubator in the garage outside the home, but he used a small portable oil furnace that he bought to keep the chickens warm and cozy! The portable oil furnace that he bought was entirely cheap, but it gave just the right amount of warm air that the chickens needed to survive the weather going on at the time. All of us around the home kept a small control device thermostat on the side of the chicken cage, and the temperature around consistently registered in the 70’s. All of us around the home actually as well as truly kept the chickens in the garage all while we was in the Winter, and the portable oil furnace worked great for the whole thing, but by the time the Spring temperatures allowed the chickens to go outside, they were grown enough to fend for themselves. I assume it was a fine thing our dad got the chickens while we were in the fall, so they could get huge and strong while we were in the winter time months of the year over here! Next time our dad wants to get chickens, I believe the portable oil furnace and garage system will do just fine. I also believe that some of those chickens could win first prize at the local county fair.
