Cold Weather Chickens

People who thrive in the colder areas of the country choose to live in places like New England, the Northern Plains, or the Pacific Northwest. In our selection of cold weather chickens, Cackle Hatchery® offers breeds that are winter hardy. Compared to other breeds, they are more capable of living in the snowy or wintery areas of the country.

Many cold weather chickens have smaller combs and wattles, giving them less flesh exposed to the cold. This feature dramatically reduces their risk of frostbite. These cold-hardy chickens also have thicker, fluffier feathering. Thicker plumage allows these chickens to better retain heat and protect their bodies from moist snow and cold winds.

Thanks to their distinctive characteristics, these cold weather chickens can survive and even thrive in winter weather and chilly conditions. But they also do well during the warmer summer season.

If you are seeking chickens that are well adapted to life in winter climates, you’ll find them here at Cackle Hatchery. Check out the different options available to you below. Or call us today at 417-532-4581 for help picking the perfect birds for your backyard.
