    These are part of my coops ventilation. They are fully adjustable from the outside. They are also sheltered by the roof overhang and screened with hardware cloth. I mirrored this set up on the opposite side which are higher up and should provide good draft free air flow.

    Fine use of adjustable vents, eh.. Open them up when it's hot, shut em down when it's not.
