I have a shed coop combo and am experiencing a lot of condensation in my coop. To the point there’s water droplets on the windows. Any suggestions?!
Thank you

Are you closing those windows?
How many birds?
Are you keeping water in the coop with a deicer or heated waterer?
Are there other vents not shown in the picture?
What has your weather been like?
What has the humidity in your area been?

Looks like you could add some nice big vents up really high.
Yes windows are closed.
I have 15 chickens.
There is water in the coop.
There are two vent holes on each end of the coop. Weather has been wet and if not we then freezing.
Thank you for your help!

You definitely need more ventilation.
Having tall walls gives opportunities to add BIG vents up high.
Leave at least one of those windows open a few inches too.
Chickens don't drink at night. I recommend removing the water at night.
I also say remove the heat lamp.
