    I have a 8 x 10 shed with a 8 foot plus peak,it has vents in both peak ends and 2 windows.The eaves are sealed shut.The eaves face north and south.Do you think I need to open up the eaves?

    Yes open them up every other one and be sure to replace the blocks with Chicken Hardware Cloth so no nasties can get in the coop at night or not attended by you.
