    I just added a window to my 10x12 coop today! It only took aboot 20 minute, lol. I decided to add it because I wanted more light in it and I was told that if there is more light in my coop then I might get more eggs from my hens? Don't know if that's true. Just thought I'd share. But anyways, here it is

    Nice job!

    But you might want to cover the window with welded wire (hardware cloth) instead of chicken wire. Predators can rip right through chicken wire easily to climb inside that window and get at your chickens.
