Hi everyone! I'm new to this forum and new to chickens. I "inherited" 14 chickens from my brother when he moved from the country to the city. They were pets of my nephews. We are really enjoying them. We are in the process of building them a new coop. Here come the questions??? We thought about using insulation inside the coop using the pink stuff that comes in sheets. Will they peck it and eat it? If so , what should we use instead? Should the nest boxes be inside or outside the main room? I expect some very cold nights this winter. Should we use heat lamps/light bulbs for heat? I'm afraid of catching the coop on fire! I have a mixture of Serama and Crele, one Silkie and one EE. All Banties except the EE. I'm sure I got the breeds mixed up but I'm trying to learn as much about the birds as possible and Ya'll are the best resource I have found. Thanks!
