Moisture is more noticeable in the summer, with the heated odor and humid air. However, in the winter many chicken owners forget to worry about moisture because the coop feels dry when the weather is cold. However, cold air has its own problems: because cold air can’t hold moisture, the damp stays near the floor and doesn’t travel out the vents with the air. This damp air can lead to frostbite on your chickens’ combs.
Chicken Coop Cupolas Provide Year-Round Ventilation
In can be tricky to maintain this balance, which is why most barns have cupolas on their coops: they’re perfectly designed for year-round ventilation. Louvered cupolas work to pull air up and out. This allows hot, humid air to escape during the summer and keeps air circulating in the winter.
Chicken coop cupolas are the perfect ventilation during cold weather: being set in the roof keeps drafts from affecting your chickens. Their caps and louvers also help keep rain and snow from entering your coop.
