Sorry to hear that. I only had my girls for less than 6 months, but i noticed every on every forum these chicken keepers are outta their minds lol. People are always biased one way or the next.­ i found had some of the best advice for me. I went with coarse sand$2/bag  in the run, and just decided on hay and pine shavings for the coop which is just 6 pieces of uninsulated 3/4" plywood. I have 8 pullets and a 18"x10" vent which i always leave open in one of the two adjustments in its abilities. Run is covered from 2" above roosting poles to floor w tarps, and i have a tarp system for the rain as well. Only issue w this winter is water freezing which has been solved for $8. Bottle lamp kit and 40 watt bulb from home depot and cookie tin from Walgreens provides enough heat to prevent freezings.
