    I am having a hard time keeping food dry, does anyone have any suggestions or good tips?
    Here's a picture of the coop, I normally have the end of the coop where the food is covered with a tarp. The rain seems to blow in anyway.

    * A couple ideas. I used a inverted plastic water heater pan on stakes to make a rain shelter for Chook. 36" dia. $9.oo and 4 stakes, $2.oo. If that's not enough, try an inexpensive garbage can and cut open part of it. Upend it and sink it in the ground over the feeder with the opening facing the dryest direction.
