Help with lime whitewash

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I know some of you whitewash your coops and some old-timers have experience with whitewash in general (hopefully some of you will see this!) so maybe I can get some help. I whitewashed the inside of my coop yesterday using a water/lime/salt recipie. It dried white and didn't rub off with my finger (only did one coat and was letting it dry with the door open) however when I went out to the coop this morning it looked like I had just painted! It was all translucent again! I think it was the dew. But how in the world did anyone use a basic limewash on fences and stuff if the dew re-wets it all. Anyone know if this is normal? Or can tag anyone who might know?

Sorry, I don't know, but...have you tried a search yet?

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

 

Quoting centrarchid:

"Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it."
