    Do goats need supplemental heat during the winter months? We have a panel heater that is chicken coop safe and am wondering if I should stick one in their shelter. Winter in Colorado can get mighty cold, do they need help?

    I’m in central CO. I don’t heat my barn that houses the goats, chickens, and ducks. They all do well. They do need a place to get out of the wind.
