May I ask what "flat panel heated" means? Did you use the hard panels of insulation?
Sorry heater. We also did use hard panels for insulation but they have to be covered with wood panel or chickens eat insulation!

That's an interesting heater. I'm going to check it out. I take it that it is fire proof? The picture shows the heater sitting on straw. Last year we wrapped the inside of the coop with thick plastic and used the big red heat lamp only when it got very cold and never left it on overnight (afraid of fire). We may try some hard insulation panels plus heat when needed. Does the heat radiate well from the flat panel as the heat lamp is very narrow but does take off the edge.

May I ask what type of insulation you used? Our coop has 2 vents at the very top of opposite walls, just beneath the roof plus 2 screened windows and 2 doors.
