Taking Care of your Chicken Coop
We recommend using a high-quality wood preservative, varnish, roof sealer, or water repellant. This should be applied within the week of purchase and/or before heavy rain. You should pay particular attention to all of the roof edges, eves, and all joints, this will waterproof your coop and prevent the wood from swelling.
It is important that you clean out the coop and treat the wood regularly, if this isn’t done, the wood can become brittle and unsightly. We also recommend applying additional coats of wood preserver if the run is going to be kept outside. To ensure your run continues to look great, we recommend that you position it in a protected area that is not fully exposed to the elements.
Remember to only use non-toxic, animal-friendly cleaning and treatment products.
