Here's my dilemma, the place we're at is temporary for two years. Our new place will have a much better design until then I've got to work with what I have. We have chickens, rabbits and goats in an old barn here on the property. We put the chickens on the north side because the wall already had a chunk missing and it would be a great place for the chicken coop door. During the summer winds come from the south, winter the winds come from the north/northwest. The door seals shut and blocks the wind, I'm trying to figure out how to leave the door open and having something in place to block the wind from ripping through the coop/barn during the winter. I've thought about doing something like what folks do for walk-in fridge/freezers and have some heavy plastic strips hanging down but am afraid that chickens might not go through it then. Moving the door or letting them out any other way is not an option unfortunately. It's either solve this problem or they stay in the coop all winter :(
Thank you for you help!
