So, I went and bought all the stuff to try and build my hood coop today. We don't have a lot of space to work with so I decided on a 5'x10' run. I bought 3 2x4x10 and cut one in half to make the short sides. I bought 3 pieces of 20ft 1/2" pvc and cut them in half to 10ft lengths. I put the T's on either end of one piece and attached 4 of the other 10ft pieces to the other ends of the T's, waited 30 min for the PVC cement to dry and tried to bend the PVC frame to fit into the wooden frame. We kept experiementing with different lengths of the legs of PVC (started with 10 which we knew was too long, then cut to 8, then to 7) but everytime the results were the same, one end would pop out of the T no matter how well we cemented it or waited for it to dry. We even tried gorilla glue. I tried putting the EMT straps on the outside of the wooden base frame to give it more flex room and the PVC was flexing so hard it was pulling the straps off the wood. Im at a loss of what to do right now. I got so frustrated I broke the T's on both ends trying to pull the legs out and now have to go buy new T's and a new cross beam PVC. Should I cut the legs down another foot, and keep going till I find a flex length that works? I didn't want the pen to be 3ft tall, I wanted to at least be able to walk in it without hunching over much (I'm 5'4" so at least a 5' tall pen). If I can just get this darn frame bult without having to invest a ton more money I have everything to finish building the pen. Advice would be much appreciated!
