    I am thinking about getting one of the mat heaters for my coop that I saw on shop the coop web site. I was wondering if anyone has used them and their opinion on it. I am in MN and my coop is 4.5 x 5 and I am not under the impression that it will make it balmy in there. I just thought they could snuggle up on it if they were really cold. Any thoughts?

    I have not heard of them.

    Are your chickens roosting or are they still snuggling on the floor/ground?

    No, haven't used one, but sure would like to. A little expensive for a lot of chickens/coops.
