    I was wondering if a moisture barrier on the floor would help my coop??

    If your coop is well built you do not really need it IMHO (and if it isn't well built, a moisture barrier won't help much [​IMG])

    It's really important to avoid accidentally trapping water between an impermeable barrier of any sort and your actual floor, so if you use one, be careful.

    Good luck, have fun,
