This may sound stupid, but I am wondering what are the main causes of fires in coop? I read that many coops have caught fire when trying to heat/light them. I was wondering if it was, for example, the electrical wire going through the wall, the chickens that peck the wires, the hay too close to the heat source, the light bulb falling in the hay.. etc. I was thinking of wiring and insulating the coop as we did for the house. I would put the outlet near the top of the coop and protect it by a little cover. I would protect my light bulb with a wired cage to be sure the chickens can't touch it. I will make sure the wire from the outlet to the bulb is either hidden in the closed wall OR protected by a box..althought it will probably not prevent "flying" lost features from going ON the bulb.. and I was wondering if that was dangerous (it sounds so, to me..). I wasn't thinking of heating my coop, but I would surely like to have some light. I don't think they will have fun to be in the dark all the time. Even though I will have some opening, it will remain darker in the coop, and I will probably appreciate the light when I go clean and feed, considering that in winter time I only see daylight when I'm sitting at my desk at the office :S Thanks!
