    I know when building a barn even in cold places you don't insulate because it closes it up too tight and the animals are more prone to respiratory illness.
    How about a coop?

    My mother never insulated hers. My coop my birds were only in in the spring/summer/fall - they lived in a friends barn all winter

    This was 30 years ago though. Anything changed? LOL
