My name is Ivy and I recently built a chicken coop. I love chickens and use to have lots of free range chickens that we never had any problems with such as sickness etc. Well now I have a coop and 8 chickens that I have grown very fond of, 5 are my favorites and follow me like puppies when I let them out each day. They now give me 7-8 eggs a day which had me over run with eggs so I had bright idea to use this as one way to help me raise money for my 501c3 nonprofit org where we visit and gift the elders in nursing homes. I will sell the eggs and use all the money they raise on buying gifts. But now they seem sick and I will not be selling any until I know they are well and it is safe. I need some friends that can help me keep them healthy and safe.
I bundled them up during the really cold months.

BYC has Topic of the Week discussions which I have found to be a great resource, informative and sometimes entertaining; so definitely worth checking out.

Looks like your coop is so "buttoned up," there is no ventilation . Chickens need a draft free coop but also ventilation. Condensation from their breathing and heat of their bodies will rise above them - ventilation just under the roof will allow that to escape. Otherwise it will fall back on them and cause frostbite .
