Ok so, I am expanding my coop. Lucky for me that my coop is only part of a larger building. Half of the larger building is my coop and the other half is an unfinished play house for my kids. Now that I am chicken crazy I am kicking the kids out of their unfinished playhouse and making one big coop!!!So my questions are these: 1) I have a actual window in there and someone shot a hole in it a long time ago with a bb gun. So now there is a hole and the glass is barely hanging on. SHould I try to tape up the window or just take the glass out completely and screen it? Question 2) The floor is made of these huge 6inch by 12inch boards and while they are great there are spaces between. Maybe an inch wide. Was thinking of covering the entire floor over with cheap linolium or vinyl. ANy thoughts? Also need to put on a roof which will be recycled metal and siding. Unsure on that part yet. Seeing how I live in "way northern CA" our winters are mild never getting below 30 degrees. Once in the 80s we got down to 24 degrees. But that is few and very far between. Not really a worry about cold weather. So any ideas would be great. Thanks for the help!
