    First-time chicken owner here. Just curious about others comments about ventalation in the coops. What would be the difference between drafts and ventalation?

    I have five 6x6 dog run panels in a round shape against the side of my large shed. I have a heavy duty tarp for the roof. I am going to close in the panels with tarps in a couple of weeks to keep temp up inside.

    Another BYC member recently described it this way - a draft is airflow that hits the chickens on their roost. Ventillation is airflow well above the roosting chickens.
