    This is my coop 5x8 coop and 5x8 run. I plan on adding to the run layer this summer. Please excuse the poop on the ladders and poop board. My husband took picks before i had a chance to clean them. I have 4 vents. One on each wall. I have heard you can add a fan to the coop for the summer. Any recommendations would be appreciated.

    Your picture if you did add some did not come thru for me???.
    Fan is a good Idea If needed. Best to have draw air out of coop rather than blow on your chickens..

    Sorry I did not make myself more clear. What I mean is to have fan installed in such a way that the air will be blowing out of the coop like an exhaust type fan. The fresh air entering the coop will be thru the other openings, like door, or pop door, window, vents,ETC. This way there are no direct winds onto your chickens. [​IMG]

    I dont see any pics either, but look into attic exhaust vents. I think thats what cavemanrich is referring to.
