    I know this question was posted not to long ago. I hope this is a little different and also didn't want it to get mixed results by adding it to a another post.....Anyways

    My coop is 8x10 and I have 2 windows one on the south wall and one on the north wall and 8 feet of ridge vent in the roof does this seem to be enough ventilation? Just wanting some thoughts!!!

    I don't have updated photos on my coop page so they won't so you much in venting.

    I think you should be fine and you can always in summer add a fan if need be. I also put a screen door covered with hardware cloth on mine. That way I could open the main door and lock the screen door that way in summer it helps keep the temps down in the coop.
