    I'm going to Sam's Club today to buy this playhouse for my Chickens. I'm in Indiana and need something to keep them warm. Do you think this will work?

    How can I adapt this to a chicken coop? What ideas do you have?

    Can I put patio block down for the floor and put my wood shavngs down a few inches thick?

    Do you have any idea for winterizing it?

    It is made of Cedar... will this be okay? I know cedar shavings are not good..... but this wood should be fine right?

    The patio blocks should work just fine as flooring and pine bedding is fine as well.
    The issue I see is the open windows and door in the front. How will you close these off and allow light and venilation and the big IF be able to keep predators out.? (unless windows and a door are included and just not shown)
