We're still working on the coop, my husband had a week off for hunting. It got too cold to properly put the linoleum down this year. So far what we have for flooring: the floor is off the ground by a few inches and has plywood, hardware cloth, some strawboard as insulation and another layer of plywood. I wanted to put the linoleum next, but it's just too cold for the glue. So would the chickies be better off as it is so far for the winter? Or better off with my other option which is, I have some 2 inch thick heavy rubber mats that we have on hand for the horses that I could use. I was thinking it could work for protection of the wood until I can get linoleum in next spring, should make cleaning easier and it may even have some insulating properties? Or maybe it would be cold feeling for them? Not sure on that. What do you think?
