I think you got it. Hope so anyway.

x2. Very possible, especially if rain was coming in at an angle.

In a pinch, if it still seems to be leaky during the next rainfall, use a sheet of plywood or anything like a greenhouse panel, plastic roof panel, etc. and angle it over that wall to protect it. That's pretty much what I do when there's wind driven rains.

I will definitely do that. Just when I though I had everything squared away with my coop...

That's just how coops are. My coop is going on almost 3 years now, and it was just this winter that hubby said he could feel rain blowing in through one of the windows during a storm (and then again during another storm), so that window has been shut since then. It was never a problem before that. :confused:
