    very nicely done!

    Is the wood just left raw? at the very least you should seal it against the weather with a clear waterproofing sealer of some type. To help it withstand the weather

    Did you build this from a kit? Currently looking and trying to decide what's best. ? Any issues ?

    Yes I got a coop from "chicken saloon" . Every thing was okay except for a couple scratches here and there from shipping. One part (the pull out base of the coop) was very messed up. We comtacted them and they shipped us a new one the next day. Of course it isn't there fault, but fedex. It's very nice and was easy to assemble. All we really used was an electric screw driver. Only took about 3 hours total. I really love it!

    It was a kit. They said the wood is fir and does not need a wood seal so I haven't decided yet!
