What part of the world am I in: I live in Utah, SLC
Dimensions of the coop (feet by feet is really helpful): Coop is a 5x6 Internal
How many birds live in the coop: I have 5 birds
Ages of the birds: Less then a year (bought April 2020)
Breeds of the birds: 2 Sex links and 3 Rhode Island Reds
Whether they have a protected run so they don't get forced to stay in the coop during storms: Open run (no cover) that is about 5x20 but they free rang in that backyard
Here are some pics of the coop:

You are lacking in ventilation. The waterer should also be removed from the coop.
The heat lamp definitely needs to go.
Can you please post pictures of the full coop exterior? All sides?
