I have a few things I would like to get some info on. My run gets very muddy after rain, or snow. I don't think this is good in freezing temperatures. Also I have 2 windows in my coop. One is 12"x12" on the opposite side of the roost in the coop, but direct in line with the roost. The other window is 2"x24" and is eye level with the chickens when they are on the top roosting pole. This is bad in winter months correct? Should I close these windows up and make some vents up higher in the ceiling for ventilation? Also, I am using cedar chips for my deep littler method. This will work right? Everyone always swears by pine chips. Any info is appreciated. Thanks.
