Coop construction starts tomorrow on the old 4x8 utility trailer i found on Craigslist today. (I was thinking it might be nice to be able to move the chicken area to a different spot someday). I realize the coop should've come before the chicks and I blame our granddaughter for the backwards plan but having them does provide a good incentive to get busy fast.
I have not searched the discussions yet but will be looking for an answer to this basic question before we head to Menards. We live in NW Indiana and I was wondering if we should cover the sides and roof with corrugated metal siding or wood and should we insulate? I don't have money to waste on a fancy looking structure but don't want to make a mistake either.
Thank you. I'm glad I found this forum.
