    After 25 years, I have chickens again.. I built a new coop and used an old p/u topper for the roof and wanted to show the air vents I made for the roof, as the topper is pretty air-tight. The picture didn't turn out so couldn't post it. I used 4" pvc pipe and an ice cream pail for the top. Drilled 1" holes all around the pipe and caulked it in place in the roof. The pail sits on top of the pipe and comes down past the holes to keep out the rain. Seems to be working well. Finias

    I'll have to wait and make more before there are pictures. Actually I have to figure out how to put the picture on here...

    Welcome Finias! There's a section for chicken and egg recipes on this forum. [​IMG]
    If you cut and paste the photo from your uploads section, that should do it.
    Good luck!
