    When we built our coop in August we used the corrugated metal roofing panels for the roof and it's worked well for us so far, my question is, should we fill in the hills and valley that are in the tin or leave them alone. We don't get to cold here in NC, a few nights below freezing, usally, and I know that they need proper ventilation, so what do y'all think?

    I have spaces near the trusses in my coop that are open and I have two attic vent covers that I leave open. They are near the roof and not close to the chickens to cause a draft problem. So I think it would be fine to leave them open.
