- Regional Info
Airflow in your coop is your biggest concern whether it's summer or winter. Roost & Root Coops use passive updraft ventilation in the roost areas to protect your sleeping chickens year-round from inclement weather while at the same time making sure they get critical ventilation, key to their respiratory health during hot & cold seasons and in particular, protection from frostbite in sub-zero temperatures.
Considerations for Zones 2-6Snow/Storm Panels: Extreme storms can bring too much of a good thing to the outdoor areas of any coop. Our snow/storm panels are for the run areas of your coop and add temporary extra protection for extreme sideways driven stormy weather in hot or cold seasons. Panels keep sideways rain and wind-driven snow from making things too sloppy in the run areas that chickens hang out in during the day. They are designed to be attached and detached during inclement conditions in warm or cold seasons, only when needed. Panels are "transparent" for maximum clarity but they also can provide some shade. Where needed, ventilation is added to panels to make sure they do not cut off too much air circulation while still being able to protect your flock from... umm, fowl weather. Panels will not make your coop "waterproof" but will knock out the vast majority of wind-driven snow and rain in the "outdoor" run areas. Freeze Protection: All coop waterers are shipped with a slotted cap that allows the water to breathe air as the water goes down. We make the slot big enough to allow a cord of an immersible heater to go through too. Based on feedback, submersible fish tank-style heaters work best. Presumably, it keeps the body of water in the tank warmer. Poultry Nipples: Keeping the water from freezing is half of the battle. The nipple can freeze too if exposed to a direct sub-zero wind chill. That's why we create and sell a No Freeze 3D Printed Poultry Nipple that you may want to consider as an optional upgrade if you live somewhere cold.
Considerations for Zones 7-10Living somewhere that experiences up to triple-digit weather can be bothersome not only for you but your chickens too. As you can see with all of our coops, heavy-gauge wired panels not only provide protection but offer an adequate amount of ventilation for your birds during the hottest of months. It's critical to always maintain your bird's waterer. You can also provide cold treats for your flock to beat the heat as well. For further tips on how to keep your birds cool in the summer, visit our blog post below. How to Keep Your Chickens Cool in the Summer Heat
A Bright Way To Keep Out The Cold Winds & Snow In The Winter... Take Them Off When Things Warm Up! Live somewhere cold? No problem, we've got you covered. Almost every breed of adult chicken when kept dry and out of the wind chill are very, very cold hardy... even in sub zero temperatures. So if you can keep the water from freezing, the snow from accumulating in the run areas and keep sub zero winds off your flock... they're good to go. And our Storm Panels let in critical light during short winter days. Attach and detach 3D-printed retaining clips from wired panels. Coop waterers are shipped with a slotted cap that allows the water to breathe air as the water goes down. We make the slot big enough to allow a cord of an immersible heater to go through too. See the Easy-Fill Waterer & Storm Panel accessory pages for your model coop for more details. There are links to buy the heaters that fit from Amazon or other stores.
