First post so hello and many thanks for taking the time to reply

I have just purchased Cocoon 2100

I have a large garden and am looking to keep 4 birds now that I have ordered the Coop what else should I buy, not looking to buy the birds until the end of Feb or early March (let the cold weather pass)

Feeder/Water Plastic or Metal ?
Should I have a feeder inside the coop and also one in the run ?
Whats the best type of bedding ? for the nest box
Treatments required ?

Also after reading on the forums and google I have different advice on what to do with the coop when it arrives, after putting it together I have read
Put a coat of varnish on the outside
Dont do anything its new and has been pre treated already
Use creosote inside and out
