I am going to be using the old oat bin for a coop and I have a few questions. I posted on another forum but I'm not getting many responses so I'm reposting here. It's a 174sq ft octagonal building with 2 windows and 2 doors but one door must have broken at some time and is held shut with metal sheets. Probably not worth getting it to open at this time. I swept the coop, knocked down the old wasp nests (luckily none seem recent), and then sprayed it down a little with the hose. Now there's only a thin layer of dirt instead of 30years worth of dust and spider webs. First the door... The edges are all reinforced with metal strips and some of those metal strips ran across the door along with boards at the bottom I'm assuming to keep the grain from falling out of the bin. I removed the top 2 bars and have this left: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v244/aqh88/chickens/sany0484.jpg The boards kinda help seal the bottom of the door and that lower bar would require removing all the wood around it to get it out so do I need to remove all of it or can they go over it? Second here are my perches (not all fastened down yet): 3 at ~3 1/2' and 2 at ~2'. That a good height? Last I'm debating what to do with the wood floor. Someone said if water beads on it then it's been sealed and don't use linseed oil and if water doesn't go ahead. My water kinda splattered, partially soaked in on the edges, and then puddled. The wood was treated with something but not completely waterproofed. Should I put anything on it and what? There's already several containers of linseed oil around. It would be good to do something with the floor before I get birds out there instead of changing my mind later but it's also not 100% clean and would require lots of effort to get it there in order to completely seal it.
