My Coop
Light coop with dark nest boxes.

There, how's that.

I have a sky light in my coop in addition to the two windows.

I also have covered nest boxes which makes it darker for them in there and gives them privacy.

THE WINDOWS ARE IMPORTANT FOR LIGHT AND VENTILATION ( NOT DRAFTS)
AND YES YOU CAN COVER THE NEST BOX HOLES WITH A PIECE OF ROOFING
that can be cut into strips from vinyl or rubber shingles

any questions email me
