You all give me such good ideas for coop modifications!
Coffee, Rhetts, Klop, Holm, Bog!
( did I miss someone?)
My Jerseys will need a ramp. They are the last ones in the coop and by then all the good seats are taken. Then they huddle on the floor.
It may be their size as well.
I don't know how high your roost is, but I highly recommend a ramp for the bigger girls because it can be hard on them to jump down from any bit of height. I have a big BA who very carefully walks down the ramp every morning while the smaller girls just jump down. It's like she knows she's too big to be doing that! Love that girl.... my big broody mama
about plastic, I have to wrap the quail run in plastic for the winter. I could use a tarp but that seems like it would make it so dark, like a cave.
what mil are you guys using? and, is it plastic dropcloth? or what?
kind of hate to go exploring at the hardward store because I'll find other stuff and spend money! so probably will order on amazon once i figure out what to get.
I'm enjoying seeing everyone's coop pics!
I've used plastic house wrap the past two winters, of course I have no recollection of what mil it was.... but it held up great in the winter winds! I got it at menards. The only problems with it was that it was kind of a pain to put up and it was noisy when the wind blew. This year I'm trying the clear plastic corrugated panels. They're easier to put up and can be reused from year to year assuming they don't shatter when it's -25 and windy...
