We're in the process of building our coop. Well... my husband and his friend are! I am the person who is new to chickens and found 3 chickens that were apparently dropped off at our previously chickenless farm. I have been reading up on ventilation and when we install the lights, I was wondering if a ceiling fan and light set would be a good idea? I have a few left over from when we installed them in the barn in the horse's stalls. So I have them already... Then I will also be putting in a heat lamp for use if needed. We're in ND, so the winters are awful! I'm still researching if we should heat or not and if so, what type of heat. If anyone has any suggestions, I'd love to hear them! So far, we just have the outside done. 8X12 and will insulate. I like the feed room idea and will do that. Looking forward to any ideas! Thanks!
