My Coop
I have many many coops

I have an old bantam coop that is tiny 4 by 4 by 4 feet

I like to keep it for problem birds or just extra birds or small tiny chickens

My problem is few years ago it started rotting so i painted it and chipped away at the rotting wood

well its getting soft and rotting again does anyone here know how i can keep it from falling apart? lol

should i paint it again? I just want it to last 6 months till the winter?

I would remove the paint where it is rotting, sand it down, and use a good water sealer stain on it. Like Thompson's California Redwood. Nice rich brown/red color and will seal it up pretty good for you.

If there are really bad spots you could replace the wood in those areas. Short of that, nothing you can do really.
