Taking Care of Your Coop
- You must use a high-quality wood preservative, varnish, roof sealer, or water repellant. This has to be applied within one week of purchase and/or before heavy rain. You must pay particular attention to all of the roof edges, eves, and all joints, this will waterproof your coop and prevent the wood from swelling.
- Clean out the coop regularly
- You must apply additional coats of wood preserver if the run is going to be kept outside. To ensure your run continues to look great, position it in a protected area that is not fully exposed to the elements.
- *Note: Regarding the published recommended number of birds per coop, the maxim number refers to birds the size of a Quail and the smaller number refers to the size of an average Chicken, such as a Rhode Island Red. We highly recommend that you check the dimensions to ensure that this coop is the correct size for the number of birds you plan on having. The number we suggest is a guideline only. Check the dimensions of both the run and the housing, to ensure that you are happy with the size.
Remember to only use non-toxic, animal-friendly cleaning and treatment products.
