So in all the researching I've done, there's tons of info out there regarding coop and keeping chickens warm in extreme cold, but I haven't found much about coop design and keeping chickens cool in extreme heat. Corpus doesn't get quite as hot or dry as, say, Kingsville because it's on the coast, but it's still very hot (in the upper 90's or low 100's) and humid for the majority of the year. Our winter really doesn't begin until December and will last until maybe February. We have a few nights where it freezes, and because we are near the coast, it's a pretty wet cold. I do have a shady area in the backyard where the coop and run could go, but I'm not sure that the enclosed designs will work here due to the heat. The other thing I'm worried about are all the rats, possums, the occasional snake, and raccoons we have in the city, so any design needs to be plenty ventilated but still offer protection from the pests. So if anyone can offer pics of their own coop that works, or ideas I would really appreciate it. I have searched the BYC forums and have seen a couple more open designs, but I would still like some more ideas.
