So we just moved from our old place into a new one. The old place had a really nice coop built on to the side of the hay shed. It worked excellent for 10 years.
The new place had nothing and I didn't have any time to build a new coop, so I purchased one of those tarp style 10x10 portable garages and am using this as the coop. Last night it was foggy and about 34 degrees. I went out to feed the chickens and it was literally raining inside the coop from all the condensation.
Obviously this is a huge problem because wet birds = dead birds when it gets cold enough. My question is, how can I combat this condensation? Tarp on the ground? Use a razor knife and duct tape to make top vents? Just keep the front side rolled up? (it is out of the wind)
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
