Here is a pic of the side of our chicken coop cutout. I want to make sure we have the proper ventilation before we put the rest together. The circle is an 8” soffit vent. The square is a 10” gable vent. We are going to put a window below whatever vent we choose, covered in hardware cloth that can be opened and closed. The opposite side of this coop will mirror this side, with whatever we choose. The roost will go a bit above the level of the egg box. Want to make sure I get the spacing right for the vent and window so it’s mainly above the roost. Considering a ridge vent. Can we make our own, if so how? We also think we should put some windows on the doors to access the poop tray which is the opposite side of the egg box. We will have an open space under the coop for them to get in from the run to the coop, it will always be open, and the run will be rock solid predator proof. Housing 4 hens. Is this adequate ventilation? We live in Missouri, very hot summers and very cold winters!
