We haven't built the coop yet, but have tons of ideas. The "kids" right now are in a 3 foot trough in our barn all happy and content. Here's the problem, it is windy at our house. And gets real windy in the winter time. My question is, how to my beloved "kids" handle wind? We have left over tin from our barn that we were thinking of using, but not sure if they are ok with the wind or not. Also, living in Colorado on the plains, we get the snow storms too. Should we build a shelter for them to use in the winter time? Insulated and such? We don't have a whole lot to spend on a coop, but any ideas would be great. And yes, I have seen the pictures of the coops on this site. WOW! I just want something functional and safe for them. Thanks again!
