In the Brooder
- Apr 27, 2011
OK, I need some advice. Im two weeks into my first ever chicken adventure and I feel bad because I built my coop on a VERY TIGHT budget. I have a small (3.5'X4') coop and I used a cheaper plywood to build it. We have had ALOT of rain in Louisville, KY over the past two weeks and last night I couldnt close the coop windows up because the plywood was so swollen with water they wouldnt shut all the way. The large clean out door is weak and doesnt colse properly so the bottom is tightly shut but the top of it leans inward into the coop. Im trying to decide whether to try and reinforce the doors, replace the window coverings, or just replace the walls with a better quality wood. Any advice, what do you use foryour structure. I feel terrible, I dont want the chickens to not have a good home.
