Increasing Winter egg production

heated sand box for chickens

A clever heated sand box for chickens caught my attention recently.

Build a box to hold one of those heated kennel pads and add about 5 inches of sand. Prop up an old window or panel of plastic to keep out snow and rain and you’ve got a nice warm spot for your flock to enjoy.

Would an increase in Winter egg production offset the cost of electricity to run the pad?
