Coop Winterized

November 15, 2015 by Buffy

With cold wet weather setting in I decided it was time I winterized the chicken coop.  The ladies enjoy a wonderfully airy window in the Summer,

but in the winter that window is a way too drafty.  So I usually cover it with any extra plastic I can find.  This year I made good use of my old feed bags.  You know, the ones I would have thrown away.

They did a great job of blocking out the draft, while still letting some light in the coop.

This should keep the ladies happy.  You know happy ladies lay more….eggs!  If you would like to see more of my super cute coop check it out Cute Coop here.

    My in-laws use feed bags to cover drafty areas in the barn. They work pretty darned good! 🙂

    Smart move. We try to balance keeping out the cold while at the same time giving them so air circulation. Can be easier said than done…
