The only song of Jimmy Buffet I recognize immediately is Margaritaville...  Not a real fan...  I am a fan of many things but usually genra:  Country, Rock and roll, Rockabilly, Bluegrass, Zidago, Heavy metal, Celtic, Aboriginal,  Native American drum music....  what ever it is I love a strong beat because it makes me want to move my feet.   I used to be a Clogger so spent alot of time dancing to fast country or Bluegrass...  I could even clog to some rock and...
it takes time... she will roost eventually.  Just make sure she cant sleep in the nest boxes. deb
If you have four walls a roof and a floor then humidity is being generated somewhere .....  Heat rises cold roof and condensation begins....    if you insulate the roof make sure the coop is not air tight....  Just like with home construction roofs need ventilation.  Condensation in a home will cause big mold issues... with chickens its not good. BTW Welcome If I havent said it before...  Blink Blink I am just waking up this morning... it was a very long day...
