    Exactly what kind of improvements are you looking for? More pictures would help.

    Just anything in general. I've heard about some things people have to change to improve. I just would like to try before something bad happens

    How can you improve that? Well, for starters, you should move it my yard! :lol:

    Is it going to be under a roof like a barn or porch or exposed to the weather? If no roof over it then it would be a good idea to paint it. Those pre-fab coops just do not hold up to wet weather. Especially where the wood frame at the bottom meets the ground. You might also want to improve the roof with actual shingles. If it's under some type of roof then none of the above applies. A hardware cloth apron around the outside will also help prevent predators digging in.
