I started by measuring each hole in my coop. I have 4 holes for about 10 hens. I cut a piece of fabric for each side of a hole and then hemmed the sides so that they wouldn't fray on me. I didn't get fancy because as much as I love our chickens, they're chickens and they're going to get them dirty anyway.
It was easy to staple the curtains in place and then pin them back with the ribbon. I even had one in there that was laying an egg, and another one that thought she was going to be sneaky and go broody.

|Eek! Sorry! Lay on..|
