I have read some literature that suggest facing your coop to the south in order to utilize the warming effects of the sun during the cool winter months. Where I live the wind direction, on average, blows south to north. This would seem to be good in the hot summer months, but not so much during the winter. If I build the coop close to the house, to provide shade and a wind break, I lose a lot of the sunshine. If I place it out in the yard, I get the winter wind. At a loss as to the best way to go. Ideas?
