I am using 1 x 6 boards for the walls of the coop, I got them cheap and my wife likes the look. I would like to just put them together and nail them up, but I am getting some small gaps between some, around a 1/8 of an inch or less I am wondering if this will be ok in northern Minnesota, will it just help with ventilation? Or should I try to seal them with some caulking? Or any Ideas that wont take a ton of extra work? They don't really show up in the picture.
Bought some caulk and put it between each board before I nailed them down, so that should seal up the walls pretty good. Framed where the nest box will go and a window above it. And got most of the hardware cloth up. We let our 3 week old chicks check out he run, they were having a blast!
