    aww i would hate to have to paint it, i like it how it is, im sure its pine if it was made for chickens lol, my girls wont go in it yet tho, they seem timid and scared of it, hopfully thell start using the nesting boxes in it

    water and feed are ok hanging.. just my opinion, but i dont think the coop or the run in big enough for 9 chickens... i would try to upgrade asap.... just my opinion as i am sure more informed members will coment soon.... looks good though.
