    hi, painting didnt work for us, but we are in southern New Mexico where it is dry and hot.

    but i've found that the metal times for chain link works very well.

    good luck

    If you write "pvc coops" at the search window (up right) you´ll find information. I did it and was great.

    I made a PVC playpen for my chicks when they were still very young.
    I used zip ties to fasten the chicken wire onto it.
    I attached Deer Netting across the top to keep them from flying out.
    I still use it today for my little Seramas that can't mingle with the big chickens (because the Serama rooster picks fights with all my other roosters).
