This wwas the hardest thing to move like ever! However it cost me $70 and since I am no carpenter I would never be able to build a frame like that. I am wanting to sand it down and put a coat of weather proof paint, touch up the roosts and make the nesting box area a bit more cozy. Does anyone know how long I should wait before I put the hens in after a coat of paint, a good clean and a disinfection? And are there any tips for stabilizing the frame a bit more? It tends to lean when not sitting on the ground correctly and seems like if someone leans on it it will come crashing down! I knew the risks of buying an old coop like this but I cannot afford nor will my husband agree to spending $700+ for a new coop! So im stuck with turning this into the hilton for my girls!
