Would a simple overhang do it?  Hard to tell from the pics with these old eyes but it seems like if you were to put an extension off the roof above the openings you could block a lot of it.

Hope this helps,

Check out this link leads to a Video interview on me and my grand daughter done by a local TV Station on our WHITE HOMING PIGEON loft:

If you are not living for something;

You are dying for nothing.

Going only by the  view of your pictures I personally would select a coop from one of the many displayed on this site that would accommodate my needs and start a rebuild from scratch. Hopefully you could recycle some of the material from the current coop.

Ditto Dat^^^^^^.....or at least a new roof with wide over hangs.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

I was hoping you'd say that, but I just stuck to just answering your original question!  ;)

I had the same problem. I added more of an overhang and "lip" around the roof. I also made simple shutters for the large front window that I can close when it rains.

When I was in a pinch, i stapled garbage bags to one window, lol.
