    Thank you all! Question for all. Is it necessary to have a window in you're coop? I have a light in there for the cloudy days. Plus they all roam I'm the yard, and only eat, sleep, drink, and lay in the coop.

    probably should so as to get some light in there for added comfort for everything. plus you should have some air vents or an open window with netting instead of glass to get some air moving.
