We are building a greenhouse/ winter chicken coop. I have made one before and used it at our old house. It worked great. So we are making another one but I want to make a few new changes to it and would loved to get your opinions. I am going to line the inside with straw to help hold the heat in but I am also think about putting a black plastic 55 gallon drum filled with water in it. To help disperse the heat at night. I was wondering what you might think of that. Here is the first video. I am going to keep making updates on the coop. This is going to be an ongoing project threw out this winter. We live in Northern NH where we can see -0 f weather. I want to keep the girls warm with out electricity and with out spending a fortune. I would love to hear your ideas.




We have finished the green house build. The other videos for that are on our channel. We will be moving the chickens in soon. And then we will begin with the heat issues once it cools.

Howdy Al, the bales will be inside the greenhouse?

Any concern with them getting to hot from the sun shining through the glass or plastic covering?
