Chicken Coop

Next step in survival preparedness: Chicken Coop building. (I wish I had friends close to help me...hehehehe...I am a one-man show and it is tiring)

In all the researches I did, no where it was mentioned about particular precautions about electricity. Do I have to put the electric wires inside the coop into pvc tubes or there is no danger the chickens will try to eat them?

Thank you

Light at the ceiling, floodlight outside in case it is needed at night, outlet on the ceiling to plug a warming light if needed because of cold that will be hung on a hook. Except the line coming out of the ground, i think everything will be pretty high, close or on the ceiling.
Thank you!
I am in GA. So I guess notbhear needed at all...:)

Today it was from -2c to about +11c.
Sometimes it can go from -5 to +18 in the same day.
I am canadian. For us winter here is like an eternal spring...:)
It is just we never had chicken before. My wife grew up in the country, but she was too young to remember all the details.
