    As you can see in picture I have two large vents that run the lengh of the the coop as seen in the picture and there is another one on the other side of the coop just like it.There is also a ridge vent on top of roof.Its a 8'X8' coop half for storage and half for the chickens.My question is the ridge vent enough in the winter with side vents closed.I only have 5 hens in a 4'X8' Section

    It’s probably enough as long as it’s not blocked by snow.
