Additional coops: for me it is for the red rangers I'm trying out for meat (all pullets so odds are I might keep a layer or two and trade off roosters that will hatch with broodies this spring). And I wouldn't mind having an alternate coop to give the ground a chance to recover around the current coop.
Something tried hard to get into the quail run/coop last night! I thought I heard a noise, but it was all quiet for a while until I fell asleep. THis morning found the corrugated tin roof panels on the run torn off and on the ground. I laid them on top of the hardware cloth roof to provide snow protection for the quail. They were staggered and weighed down with cement blocks, so whatever tore them off had some strenght to it. Its all grass around that run, so no tracks to be seen.
Think a coon could pull the panels out from under the cement blocks? The wind sure can't.
