    I have my coop and run in the shade for summer, but now I'm wondering if I should move it into the sun for the colder months? What do you all think?

    I keep mine in the shade for the summer and place it in the sun with most of the windows facing south for the winter. At least on sunny days it will help keep it a little warmer inside the coop.

    You're so right about the patterns of sunlight. We built on NW corner of our barn to benefit from winter sun and summer shade. How easy is it to move?[​IMG]

    I think we can move it, but may have to bribe DH (he-he, minors prohibited).
