    well, im planning on making a coop from my xtra large dog house, but the Dog house is not insulated. i just want to know what could i use for insulation without having my chickens eating/pecking at, or ripping up my "chicken coop"?

    You could surround the dog house with hale bales when the temp drops. By the time the chickens pick the bales apart it will be Spring.

    Big thunderstorm here, hale (hail) was probably a Freudian slip. Of course, I meant hay bales.
