    No, but we have one of those and they get very, very hot inside. I personally wouldn't put anything living in it :eek:

    It would be open all summer, and chicks will spend most of their time outside; roosting only in the 'coop'. I abhor the idea of wooden coops and am looking for alternatives for a tiny flock. Warm in winter is a much greater issue since it doesn't really get hot here, and is often close to zero at night, even in the summer.

    jig saw would do it with a fine blade or a hack saw with a fine blade either or if you got a real good razor knife also will take longer but it will work good luck

    I have closed the doors if it was to snow hard, but didn't close them this year never seemed necessary, it snowed but wasn't very cold. Chickens were fine.

    Quote:Thanks! This is what I was wondering, not whether or not I should use this, but IF I could cut through it!
    I will post pics after I get my urban coop completed!

    Thanks for the pics of your shed, that looks awesome, kind of what I had in mind, but lower. I basically plan on having my veggie garden raised over the chicken coop/fun. Space is at an absolute premium in my yard.

    I don't like wood because I think it quickly looks derilict in addition to the fact that it is permeable and not easily sanitised.
