Ok so I've seen a lot of threads started in regards to whether or not you should heat your coop, what with the upcoming winter. Since I raise Seramas, who act like they're freezing to death even when temps dip to 50, I've always heated my coop with a heat lamp because when my hens are happy, I'm a happy hen I'm looking for ideas. I live in Ohio where the winters are rough and cold. I'm curious to see how you other chicken keepers that heat your coops set them up for winter. How do you keep the chickens from roosting on them? How do you design it so it poses less of a fire hazard? I bet there's some creative BYC members out there! Let's see your coops!
