I currently have a chicken tractor with 4 chickens, which I really like, but I would like something more permenant (read- so I can get more chickens). I promised my DD we could hatch some eggs in the spring. Anyway, I have a 6x10x6 foot dog kennel, and am thinking about building a small 4x4 henhouse inside so I can move my current flock there, leaving the tractor open for any we decide to keep from our potential spring hatch. Also, I can't really build anything outside the kennel, it is one of those that has the complete frame around it, with only a human door (no panels to be able to move around). My questions: Will my plan be big enough to keep my 4 girls happy? (I do not plan to add more chickens to this enclosure) Do I need to insulate the coop? I live in west GA, a little north of Atlanta, so our winters aren't too bad (we are lucky if it snows, but can have the occasional ice storm), but our summers can be pretty hot/humid. If I do need to insulate, what is the best thing to use? (I know no fiberglass) or What thickness of plywood would you reccommend? I have until the spring to build this, so I am not in any rush, just trying to get input so I can start buying materials slowly, to spread out the cost Thanks guys!
