Here are some pics of my Woods style open-air chicken house. I got the idea from a book written in the early 1900's. They had houses like this all the way up through Maine. The front is always open, and the other windows are opened up during warmer weather. The house measures 8 ft. wide x 16 ft deep. I have no problems with frostbitten combs -- there is no frost/dampness inside of the house -- it's kind of dusty. I currently have 11 birds.
