    Looks like a good idea. My father kept chickens. There were already out buildings on the property when he bought it. In addition to the house, there were 3 other buildings. There was a house for chickens and for rabbits and a larger one that we kids used as a play house. The chicken and rabbit houses were separate and had open fenced in areas for them to go outside. I don't know about heating. My father was an electrician, so I imagine he'd have set up some kind of electric heating for winter. We had chicken or rabbit every Sunday dinner.
