Chickens in the deep freeze

It's cold out. We had just shy of 8 inches of snow yesterday and today. The temp went from 23 deg F yesterday to a high of 6 today. (which is like -14 deg C without the windchill.) We had 9 - 15 mph winds all day. Cold! Tomorrow is expected to be colder. During all this my chickens have been living in a tent. Actually they have lived in a tent for the past 3 years without any problem. They have survived two feet of snow and temps down to - 11. I always chuckle at the folks who pamper their chickens. Chickens are tougher than we think.
