    im new to chicken world,
    I have 3 BRs,
    My coop is 3ft tall and 3 wide and 4 ft long,
    I have a 60 watts bulbs in their,
    Both sides and floor is plywood and front and back is half plywood and half chicken wire,
    Since its supposed to rain all weekend,i covered the whole coop with tarp and put cinder blocks so it wont fly anywhere,
    My QUESTIONIS; iS IT OKAY TO COVER THE WHOLE THING!
    CAN MY CHICKENS BREATHE AIR? THROUGH TARP
    You can see my coop here

    Yes, as long as their is some sort of small ventilation which I imagine air will blow through the tarp unless it was super secure. We have a coop where the only ventilation during the winter is their open doors on the front, so you should be good through the storm.
