Living in Canada, I built my coop well insulated. However, ventilation is more important to a chicken's health than being a bit cold once in a while. Chickens are tough but I wanted them to be comfortable in the -30 to -40 weather. Multiple slider windows in my coop offer the light and ventilation they need, even in the dead of winter. I have 30 hens in a 10x15 coop and I rarely smell ammonia when the windows are cracked.

I am looking to build a barn to house our future critters. (Milk cow, pigs, sheep , goats, storage etc) On a smaller scale I will add. Any ideas on what size has worked great for you? What features are a "must Have"? Thanks!

Thanks for the info Jason. There are a lot of things I want to try so I think i will pace myself so I don't get overwhelmed.

Thanks! I actually just bought a hive and am reading and You-Tubing it like crazy so I can start next spring. Do you think pigs are a big jump to try next?

Welcome Anna! Your book looks like something I need. What would be your first 3 choices on animals to get if starting up a hobby farm? I already have chickens. Thanks!
