I have a huge problem with my coop turning into an oven in the summer months and it seems like nothing I do helps cool it down! I have one large vent in the side of my coop that now has a fan that points outside in the day and inside at night. I keep the bedding at a very minimal to keep from trapping heat. My coop is separated by a plank wall and in that other room I have two windows that I open every morning. One last thing, my coop walls are made out of wooden planks and we just installed paneling in the inside. Will this make my coop really hot or does this extra layer keep it cooler???
Any advice will be very much appreciated by me and my hens!
P.s. Feel free to ask any questions!!
