Painting a roost - Page 2

I ended up using only linseed oil on the roosts and the ramp to them. The rest of the coop and nesting boxes (inside and out) are painted with livestock-safe paint from HD.

That's a good compromise, maybe I'll paint my roosts and ramp with linseed oil before I whitewash the rest if the coop...unless whitewash works as well as linseed oil to prevent pests. I'll try to Google it.

wish I read this post first.. I had some paint from a local pt. mfg. bought to cover the dark behind paneling in this old money pit house. Bought primer too.. 4 gallons of each.. did the primer yesterday. took down the new 1/4 ext plywood Hubby last week put up.. the plywood big piecesare easier to paint while on sawhorses... I first unfortuntely used old pt  fencing bds.. Bad mostly cause it has so many spaces and screw and nail holes for those good for nuttin mites etc....to hide.

 i think mice maybe living under their coop. Unfortuntely coop isbarely off the ground. floor is new 12 pine boards...

 so between the good for nuttin wild birds and mice thats prob where those invisible mites came from....

Kitty kat cant get under the pallet floors we have in their various shelters and under the main coop floor sine its almost on the ground in the back....
