    Was thinking the air in the coop was stale, so this is what I came up with. It's a cupola style ridge vent with an old microwave fan. It's quiet enough and pushes just the right amount of air!

  3. Looks great. Nice use of recycled materials. You might go to to your local hardware store and look into an attic fan with a thermostat. Mine works great, I don't have to worry about turning it on or off. I got mine for about $35.
