OK, the coop is OK but I'd like to have it a little better insulated next year. Just enough so that with the heat lamp the water won't freeze and neither will the eggs. The building we have is a 12x16 shed. It has the normal 2x4s 16 inches on center. I was sitting here thinking that I get a lot of newspaper during the course of the year, and why couldn't I use that to insulate. I could nail 18 inch wide strips of that paneling with the holes in it...name escapes me now...horizontally and slide in newspaper stacks on their sides to fill in between each support. It should be just the right height and width. I could do that up to the roof and then just put in regular insulation covered with the same boards. The holes would allow for air circulation to prevent molding but the newspapers would insulate really well, plus since they use soy ink now it wouldn't hurt the birds if they pecked at the holes in the walls. It would be easy to take down in the spring...thinking of mice...and then I could use the paper in my garden for weed control. What do you think...am I nuts? I'm trying to think green and reuse all this stuff that accumulates rather than it going to recycling centers.
