I moved the six 1-month old hens into the henhouse over the weekend. I'll keep them "upstairs" for the next few days, which will buy me time to fully enclose the sides and finish the trap-door and ramp down. After that's done, I'll work on the greater surrounding enclosure so they have more room to roam. Note: this is in a corner of the yard that gets very little direct sun except in the late afternoon. What's the best way to coat/treat those fir 2x4's that are currently exposed? Could I use the same exterior barn red paint that was used above?
