Hello! I have a flock of 6 chickens and plan on getting more, so I have a fairly large coop. For the winter, I wanted to block off half of the coop so that it would be warmer in there. The coop is 4x10. What type of material would work well for blocking off half the coop? It would still be properly ventilated but I just want to make the area smaller and warmer because the thermometer in the coop reads the same as the outside temperature currently. Any help is appreciated! Thank you!http://dlvr.it/RxbHnp
