    Well I decided that my coop, and chicks could benefit from a little light.
    During the night the heat lamp does the trick, but during the day it kinda
    gets hot in there. If I turn off the light it gets cold. So I just put in 2
    8x10 windows that should let enough light in during the day to heat it up
    plenty fine here in good old west Texas. Whatdya thing??

    I love it! My coop looks like a shack right now. I am doing my best to get it all insulated but I still have the back doors and the pop door to cut out. I love the way you've done that. Wish you could come out here and desighn mine for me lol.

    Quote::)Thanks The design is really easy though. Make a rectangle box with one side taller than the other, and cut holes in it. Bingo your done. [​IMG]
