Hi DM,

Yep the front lip of the lid was broken. It is really quite thin plastic, but it was obviously been left out exposed to the elements which may have made more brittle. And it was sent to me with cardboard wrapped round it tied with bits of string and probably got bashed a bit by the courier. I would have been gutted to have paid full price for it as I would have expected it to be of better quality to be honest. Luckily I paid very little for it so ive decided to buy a new lid and sides and therefore  will only need to paint the the run after giving it a bit of a sand down. I hope in future omlet consider using a greener and more sturdy material.

I've already planned to start a fund to buy a second hand mark 1. I can already see how a bigger coop and run will be needed in a few years and I haven't even got my first chickens yet!

-thank you Peter, that's very helpful

Thinking again about the metal paint.

It is only a chicken coop and hammerite is very expensive, Pound land & Aldi have very good metal paint, that is what I would use.

Peter.

Hi Peter and DM,

Ive already purchased a small tin of hammerite so I might as well use that. I appreciate that you are mindful of the cost of chicken keeping Peter, it soon adds up.
