    I am very new to all of this, I'm only now beginning my research and to build a coop for the spring time. But what do chickens do in the winter? Do they need special arrangements or insulation in the coops for wintertime?

    Pennsylvania? If you post pics of your setup some of us will surely help!

    Actually you are in a snow belt- big thing is draft protection and blizzard shelter, oh and keeping the water from freezing.
