Electrical Wiring Method for a Livestock Area
Electrical Question:I need some advice on mapping out a new electrical circuit for my chicken coop.

The framing is done, before I insulate I want to put in my boxes & wiring.
Here is the basic wire I am using and what I want in this circuit.
Using 12/2 & 12/3 Yellow Romex wire
4 inside outlets (one on each wall) One of these outlets I want controlled by a switch.
1 overhead light box, center of ceiling, contro1led by a switch
1 outdoor outlet, and 1 outdoor light(will require a switch)
3 Switches to left of door entry.

I need help on where the the power feed should enter this circuit, and explain what type of wire loops need to be created ?

I am planning on feeding this circuit from the power panel in my barn. Using a 20Amp GFI/Arc Fault breaker, running
12/2 UF Cable thru conduit from the barn to the chicken coop. Any issues with running this whole circuit off of a GFI/Arc Fault breaker ?

I’ve done many of my own electrical projects in the past, but this is the first all new circuit.

Thanks for any and all information & replies,
