Just curious if anyone thinks this will be much of an issue. My "ideal spot" for our coop will be in the shade most of the time. In the winter it will get more sunlight as the trees drop so I plan to keep an eye on it, but it will be shady most of the time. The spot is not a wet area but has some huge maple trees that keep the shade in and is at the edge of the woods. I plan to clear out some trees close by so that will open it up a bit and I think the winter will be better, but not full sunlight. What do you think? Major issue in NE Conn. or should I be OK? It will be a big help in the summer to have the shade and would outweigh the cold in my opinion. I just wanted others to weigh in.
