I see, but I already have some pressure-treated wood, so my question is not so much whether I need to use it, but whether it's safe to use? (I cannot return it and have no other use for it at the moment)...I say no to the treated wood.
I have had my coop for 7 years and there is no rotting. Maybe the concrete blocks help. But I also figured when it rots, I’ll just fix it, for me it isn’t a lot of work.
Chickens will go out in the snow. I made a chicken Mansion for our girls.Hi,
I'm new to this forum and also to having chickens. I'm in the process of figuring out how to make my run, have limited carpentry skills and a lot of questions! Please feel free to direct me elsewhere if my questions have been answered.
I want to make a 12' x 12' run, about 6' in height and ideally I'd like it to have a more or less solid roof (I live in the northeast and we get quite a bit of snow here, would be nice to keep it out of the run so that chickens can still go out, I heard they will not go out in the snow). I have some 2 x 4 x 8 lumber and I'm wondering if it's possible to build the frame with this, will it be sturdy enough? Also, I would prefer not to use concrete to hold the posts in place, is this possible?
Thanks so much!
