I just got an Amish built chicken coop like the ones advertised all the time. Very happy with it (although wish it was bigger) It is 8 x 5. My question is that it is not insulated and I'm not sure how to insulate it? My Amish neighbor wasn't sure either because the chickens would peck at the insulation on the north wall. Any ideas?? Do need to insulate it, we live in Chili, WI.
