I was wondering about it getting to hot in the coop this summer. Should I make vent holes that could be covered during the winter?

I'm affraid that when the temps get up into the high 90's this summer it will be to hot.

Yes, I think, no, I know, now, that ventilation is extremely important during all of our seasons. I know that there's alot of info regarding this on this site, so please keep on looking for what you need.

I saw one coop that had a hole bored in the bottom and then another one bored in the top to get the circulation going, yet it minimized the "drafty" conditions that most chickens are suseptible to....

Good Luck!

Yes. Make ventilation, regardless how you do it. The birds can die from overheating. A friend of mine mentioned that she lost a hen last year this way.
