Not really, but I don’t have any heat in the building, plus the building is not air tight.

That is my second shed and I don’t use it for much other than a bird coop. It tends to get extremely hot in the summer so I leave the doors open with netting to prevent owls from feeding in it and dog kennels to keep larger ground predators out.

The turkeys are 18 ft off the ground so not much can get to them. The chickens roost lower so something could get to them.

If a chicken dares to roost in the rafters the turkeys pick on it mercilessly pulling its tail feathers out.
I always put on a layer of OSB under the metal roofing ‘cause I’m too chicken to step on it otherwise. Plus that way I don’t have to worry about hitting the wood or not. :oops: It only incidentally helps control condensation. :p

I was thinking the same. I'll figure it out! Such sweet little morning twitters...almost like they are whispering. Great way to start a day...I look forward to hearing them. Love my hens! Marigold untied my shoes yesterday. She had fun wrangling with the laces. Daisy was in my lap watching her. Skinny Iris was bouncing around and Blossom was sitting next to me preening.
