    Those temps are nothing to a chicken. They already have perfect insulation of their own, so they don't need any in the coop.

    I insulated our coop outside of Chicagoland - FOR NOISE!
    We're urban/suburban....so I didn't wish the rooster to be obnoxious to our neighbors (about 75' away).

    Insulate against heat not cold.
