    I am finishing up my coop which has 250+ sq ft. I am planning on aprox a dozen chickens (8-month old chicks currnetly). Will this be too large to keep warm in the winter? Cement walls, fyi.
    Do you have any suggestions as to the best place to get supplies? And any input as to the best items to puchase? I need to get nestboxes-thinking metal? and feeders. Also, it appears that besides feeders and waterers, I need something to contain grit, dust baths, and calcium. I am located in West WI and work in the twin cities Mn.....
