    I would make a removable door or a hinged door with closing vents. That way the vent could be adjusted to maintain chickens comfort.

    x2. I would also add more ventilation. They will need it, even in winter.

    Definitely needs a solid door (how ya gonna keep the snow out of there?)...and you need more protected ventilation that is open 24/7/365.
