    Great ! love seeing others wanting Ckens too :-) I would agree , backyardchickens is a great blog. Also the book, A Guide to Raising Chickens.. great resourse to have on hand. a couple things. Ckens do NOT sleep in boxes UNless it is the Highest perch in the room :-0 Boxes r 4 laying & nesting. Take into account ( I'm in IA) colder climates have different needs. also , ckens actually handle the cold better then Heat.. Make sure your coop has windows that function & alllow air to circulate. we used Old storm windows , putting them in UPside down & Opening to the outside :-) that way we could open them & or shut them depending on need. Inside we covered the window opening with cken wire to keep preditors out. hope that gives you some ideas ..
