Insulating is not that necessary only if you have a metal coop as in my case. The main reason it may be feasible is not because of the cold your birds can handle that ( I live in Canada and am subject too -40º temperatures) it is to combat the heat in summer is my experience.any on insulating?
Thanks for the information! I have a mixed flock, but tried to make sure I didn't get any breeds that weren't at least moderately cold tolerant. The coop does have ventilation and I didn't realize insulation attracted rodents ( though I don't know why I didn't think about that). Last winter they just became a lot less active and I was trying to think of something that might help with that.Rodents become a problem with most types of insulation. As long as they have a draft free location the cold itself won't be an issues, especially in KY. Unless you have some breed that is not cold tolerant.
The chicken or the rodents?Last winter they just became a lot less active and I was trying to think of something that might help with that.
A nice covered run with some wind blocks might help....for now I've been ok without a run.
