    Hello,
    we built our coop this spring, and now it's time to winterize it. We built a stone wall base, and I'm trying to think of how to fill in the gaps. I can't do foam, because the chickens loooove pecking and eating it. Any other suggestions? I've attached a photo of the coop.

    Hi, welcome to BYC! :frow

    That's pretty cute. :love

    What about masonry mortar or quickcrete? Or nothing, as it's a daytime area?

    Good luck! :pop

    Why do you need to close the stone gaps?
    It's too cold to do mortar, it wont set well.
    Will you be doing anything to the run walls....like covering with plastic?
    Just run the plastic down to the ground.
