Can livestock/poultry spaces be too big?

I've always focused on making sure that my livestock and poultry had ample space both for foraging and sleeping. Is there such a thing as too much space, particularly with their housing structure?

If the coop is too enormous it will be more difficult for the chickens to generate enough body heat to keep the space warm. It's much better to house them in a coop that's too large than too small though.
