Just a quick hello to introduce myself.
I'm Alison and live in Surrey,England. Myself and my OH are currently building our coop and run so no chickens yet but hoping to get 3-4 hybrids
Have visited this site a few times to get ideas and hoping to get lots of hints and tips along the way
One question I do have.. am currently considering spraying the inside wood paneling to seal it to help prevent red mite burying in ( after caulking the edges) does anyone know a good product or have any experience of doing it?

My Coop
Welcome:welcome Nice to have you here! I used a no VOC (or low VOC) white paint inside.... makes the coop brighter and you can see bugs etc. Draw back.... you can see dirt :rolleyes: Some use whitewash. Not sure about sealing inside, the outside of my coop has it to protect from weather. Not sure if you have a window or more ventilation, cannot see in this picture. Something to consider :)

Welcome!! Happy to have you here! Your coop in progress looks beautiful! I can't offer any advice on sealing inside as I have no experience with it but I'm sure you'll find plenty of advice here! Like the above post! I'm also curious as to why you're choosing hybrids. Interesting choices! Hybrids of what? I have a couple myself but no telling what they're made of yet!
