I built my chicken coop with a closable vent in each end near the peak on the roof. I will put a heat lamp in the coop to help keep them warm during winter months ( I live in Connecticut ). My question is: when it's really cold outside is it ok to close both vents to help keep them warm? I am concerned because I know the vents are there to let fumes from chicken poop out.
