It's hard to answer that without more details -- but too little ventilation is always a bad thing, in any climate. Maybe better safe than sorry.

Too much ventilation is better than too little. You can always make insulated panels to close off some vents - when(if) they are not needed. Make sure venting is backed by hardware cloth so no predators can squeeze inside the coop.

Hello there and welcome to BYC!

I can't get your link to work. But yes, you are going to need venting no matter where you keep these birds. 1 square foot of vent space per bird in the ceiling or eaves.

Good luck and welcome to our flock!
