Hello, Getting ready to get some chickens! A friend recommended this forum. I am in the process of converting an old play fort into a chicken coop. I have a question: does the coop need to be totally waterproof? We get a lot of rain and snow here. I've found it is harder to convert something than start from scratch (!) and there are a few cracks. I am doing this with almost all recycled/reclaimed materials, which is a challenge, just sort of fitting it all together jigsaw style. My apologies if this topic has already been addressed here.....I call myself hayseed for a reason! Thanks!
