These below 0 tempuratures are no fun, for us or the chickens!

And sometimes shutters and removable window awnings, for in the summer...I will see if the one that I am thinking of is still there...I think they turned it into a work shop and storage building. I've collected a few old books on chicken keeping, and they have pictures of these buildings...let me know if you have seen them in your area.

 

The last place I lived had a coop like that...one whole wall was windows.  I went it one better and cut out a large space in the opposite wall as well as opening up a foot square space under the roosts. 

 
Matthew 10:32-33 - Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.  But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.

Yea I got 3 lab's they are awesome, they really watch out for them. And I will only free range in the day time when I call them tee, tee, tee they come running it's funny. But I've only let them out a few time's, in the spring I'll let them out every day. I want them to lay in the nesting boxes before I let them out.
