    I am looking for:
    Faverolles, barnevelders, and a couple blue slate hens. The chickens I am looking for any sex.

    Also I am going to the swap in Springflied this weekend and am taking Black copper marran chicks of various ages, barred rock chicks, a couple ring neck pheasant chicks, and a couple Sicilian butter cup chicks if anyone is interested. Also will have barred rock hatching eggs.

    I have 3 pullets about 11wks old. If you want them they are yours, free.

    I'd take those pullets if you still want to get rid of them.
    PM me!​

    anyone want to tell me if you did or did not insulate your coop

    and if you did, was it worth it,

    or if you didn't and wish you did

    i have an 84 square foot coop framed up and despite the weather, i'm going to try to get enough work done to get my chicks in there this weekend

    i'm pretty sure i'm going to insulate at the ceiling level but am not sure about the walls was thinking about doing just the north wall behind where the chickens will roost

    i have enough rigid foam insulation to do both of those places leftover from other projects, but wonder if it's a waste of time.

    i have read pat's page about cold weather coops, but am interested in other opinions

    chime in if you have one (or two)

    Quote:I also like insulation at the ceiling, especially if the roost is near it. I found you do not want I tight warm coop as it leads to moisture and frostbite. But this winter.... with all the wind... and my chickens liking to be outside at 0 and below.... I got frostbite anyway! I think insulation is a waste of money, if you have a large coop with no draft and a fair number of chickens to keep eachother warm you'll be fine.
