    Our coop is just about finished except a little bit of painting and trim. We thought it looked fine for the chickens though, so our 3 oldest girls moved in at the beginning of the week at about 7ish weeks old. They have loved it! The only problem is that we suddenly have rain. A lot. And we have multiple areas inside that are getting damp. One area is the nesting box... I thinking where the hinges are. And another area is the window. My husband put it in backwards so we could open it from the outside. I'm kind of shocked that we have so many leaky areas to fix... I thought this would be easier?! Is this a problem for any others?

    On top of it all I have no idea how to fix it and my husband is working the next two days. Sigh. Ok, rant over.

    If nothing else, you can throw a tarp over it as a stop-gap until it can be properly repaired.
