    This would be a great project for those who have cold winters.

    Here is a video about how to cheaply make a passive solar heater. This guy built it to heat one room of his house, but I was thinking that it could easily be used to heat a chicken coop during the day.




    By the way, how do I change the title on this thread? I wrote "Solat." Duh.

    I'd use the idea to heat my garage, for ME. The chickens don't need a heater.. They do alright on their own.

    I was thinking this would be good for those who live in the northern United States, Canada, or other areas that have very cold winters.

    And yes, it would be good for your garage also.
