    Hi have been considering changing to a plastic house. We live in Belgium fairly wet thought would help cleaning in winter. Any one swapped what do they think?
    Plus any tips or views on benefits or negatives of plastic housing pretty expensive to buy so want to be sure its going to be good for the gang

    it would be great but it needs to have ventilation and i don't think they would stay warm enough

    I only have wooden shed type coops (THREE of them...lol), but I know folks who have the plastic shed coops. They have had to modify to add plenty of ventilation, and I don't think modifying them is as easy as modifying a wooden coop. But once modified, they seem to work really well...
