When Do You Close Various Vents/Windows? - Page 2

post #11 of 13

I'd close that vent at roost height if it is blowing on them and/or when it gets below 40. keep the higher vents open.  You don't want a breeze on the birds when it is cold out.

My favorite instructional threads:

Poop Board Convert / Instructions for very easy heated waterer related: Frozen nipples finally working /  No waste bucket feeder / DIY thread Lets see your inventions / Mama heating pad in the brooder

Not instructional, but what a ride, only read if you have time to kill/can't sleep, it is a book you can't put down!:

Hey Mary, your climate sounds similar to mine.... where are you?

I'm in lower Michigan, slightly milder than most of Wisconsin, but not much.  For winter, we enclosed the lower six feet of the run in plastic sheeting, leaving the upper areas uncovered.  Worked really well.  Mary
