I'm in the process of building a coop, and I'm looking for some small (about 12" x 12") windows, but can't seem to find anyone that sells them. I've seen them on coops for sale on the web, so I know they exsist. Does anyone know where one might find small windows?

I know I've seen 1x2ft windows at Lowes. Not sure if they have any 1x1ft, though. You can call and ask hardware stores. If none have them, they may be custom made/ordered.

Check for a Habitat for Humanity ReStore. They have all sorts of windows from time to time. And builders surplus places, also, as well as flea markets. Have bought windows from all those places.

Are you somewhat forgiving on the size? Home depot has windows 16" x 8" for $25. They are called vent windows and come with screens.

I've seen 24" windows (that's what we had in our shed and are now using in the coop) but not 12". You can make any size of window with a plexiglass panel, though.

I'm not sure what you want the window to do? It is not that hard to make a window, but we would need to know what you intend it to do to discuss how. Is it just for light, light and permanent ventilation, or light and seasonal ventilation? f you make it, you can make it any size you want.

Thanks everyone. You've given me some great ideas. I'll check eBay and my Habitat store. If they don't have what I'm looking for, then maybe I will make my own.

I read somewhere on this great forum about someone using picture frames for their windows. I bet a 1x1 picture frame will be a lot easier to find than a 1x1 window.
Best of luck on your search!
