Chicken Coop Upgrades

Sunday the chickens got an upgrade on their coop.

The problem was that the hole from the coop into the chicken run was facing west, allowing almost all the wind to directly blow into the coop. This is ok in the summer but in the winter there will be some chilly chickens.

As you can see I put a wall in front of the doorway so the wind cannot blow in and shifted over the ramp. For now the North and South ends are open letting winds from those directions blow through, but they may get closed off also.

Last week I moved the food inside the coop and yesterday I moved the water inside (it kept freezing). Moving the water inside didn't help because it was still frozen this morning. We will keep working on that one.
