    x2

    That's a pretty tight coop, no windows, any venting at all? Wonder if you saw any condensation on those reflective ceiling panels during the winter months ?

    Edited to add: the rebar in the bottom of the chicken wire is a great idea!!

    Ha, yes. Thanks for the tip. I'm planning on adding them. This coop is new, since we increased our flock. Was waiting for some warmer weather. I'll check out your link.

    exactly, had a 3x4 coop with about 7 chickens then did the full upgrade to manage 18 birds.
