    I am building and I am not sure what to do. I have wire mesh on the walls of my coop not sure what is best for winter. I have a ton of used roofing tin and styrofoam board insulation I anm thinking tin insulated walls for winter to close up the sides I have good ventalation at the top of the coop I have silkies so limited ventalation low so they dont get a draft. I can samdwich the insulation between pieces of tin so the birds cant get at it. I have huge overhangs on my roof so I am not worried about possible leaks from rain

    Sounds reasonable to me too.
