I've been working on these sketches for a few weeks now, constantly improving with new ideas or jotting down construction notes to the side lol. Anyway, I have a question about my coops ventilation. These images are still in progress- we will start the actual build next week. Some details first... We plan on using a deep litter method. The roost is 18" off the coop floor (closer to the deep litter though). The windows shown will have hardware cloth embedded between the studs and sheathing. There will be hinged framed plexiglass windows over that for extra ventilation in the hot summer months. Since we live in Oklahoma, we can have VERY hot summers and pretty cold winters too. We get a lot of rain in the spring. The lowest windows in the front will be about 10" above the roost. The higher windows in the back will be about 16" above the roost. I am contemplating leaving a triangular cutout right below the roof (with hardware cloth of course) for ventilation in the cooler months (the grayed out triangles). The cutouts will measure approximately 4.5" high at the centers and 18" across at the base. Will this be significant enough for us? The floor plan is 24 sq ft and we currently have 6 chicks. Barring we lose any before then or we have a surplus of roosters, we intend on housing them all in the one coop.
