    Last year I remember seeing heating pads that can be attached to the walls of a coop. Does anyone remember who sells these? I want to get one for my Silkies...

    I bought a small heating mat for the floor of my coop loft at www.shopthecoop.com

    I noticed she has flat panel heaters for the wall and also ceramic heat bulbs that give off heat but not light.

    Hope this helps!

    Hi there! I live in the Seattle area. The winters can get a bit harsh for three or four weeks so I am worried about keeping the coop warm. I have four cold hardy hens so they will probably be OK, but I want them to be comfortable not just survive! I bought a small heating mat (which they love) and a 100 watt ceramic bulb from Shopthecoop.com. I may buy a small flat panel heater for the ceiling instead of the ceramic bulb. The ceramic bulb works great though, I have already used it in the coop because we had a very cold Spring here and I needed to keep the coop warm as the chicks moved out of the house during that time. I wouldn't want a light on all the time at night if I were a chicken. So I thought a ceramic bulb would be nice to heat the coop but not bother the chickens. I'm just trying to get prepared for the winter, I may buy the small heated poultry waterer she has for sale too. Hope you find the right panel heater you are looking for!
