    We had a good start on our coop when hubby had a heart attack (for reals)... so now we are back at it (and hubby is feelin fine).. Floor of run is pavers and frame of coop is pressure-treated wood...heavy duty... Wanting to know if anyone out there has used a "sealant" to seal between pavers/flooring and wood foundation timbers??? Leaving tiny gaps in pavers alone, as those gaps can serve as drainage when/if we ever need to hose out the run...
    Ideas?? Warnings?? We are hoping to hear back tonight... off to Home Depot tomorrow after work.. Thanks..

    I did not do it to mine but a drain of some type would be nice mine is a tounge and groove floor with like 1 in cement. Makes it easy to clean. I would put somethig like that back in if I built another. I'd go thicker on the cement the other has cracked
