    I don't really know what to say, how can we possibly give useful answers with just a general "the coop is crappy and she doesn't like it" description? [​IMG]

    Either fix it or build a new one. She can find lots of information on both of those subjects in the bazillion or so books that are in libraries and bookstores regarding how to build sheds. (A coop is just a shed, really, from a structural standpoint).

    Good luck, have fun,

    Pat

    I could be wrong, but I think this new member is not very old. [​IMG]

    Weston, try to post some pics of the coop so that we can help with some better suggestions.

    Pics would be nice. If the wood is warping on the sides, the roof may need to be wider and a good paint job.

    "it only holds 50 chickens' THAT'S alot of chickens. How big a coop are you talking about?
