1. I put a long branch inside so the hens can perch off the ground and hopefully help warm their toes.
2. I also hung a head of cabbage for them to peck at and play with. At first they were afraid of it, but after they discovered it was edible...all bets were off! I got this idea from About.com. However, now after 2 days its frozen! So I need to get a new one.
3. The last thing I read recently was to feed the chickens right before they go to bed. The digesting food helps to keep them warm overnight..cracked corn was suggested which I don't have so, I fed mine warm oatmeal.
