    Welcome to BYC! I've never dealt with smoky air so I'm not sure, hope someone can help good luck.

    [​IMG] I would say keep them inside, but, without an exhaust fan, the coop will probably fill up with smoke.

    If the coop is well ventilated, as it should be, then the air inside is not going to be much better then outside, and I'd be concerned about them possibly getting too hot in there. They might well be better off outside where at least any breeze or wind will keep the smoke moving.
