    I bought some flat barn red paint for my henhouse. I was just about to paint it..then I'm thinking chickens don't like red do they?
    Do you think it would be okay to paint my henhouse barn red?

    Chickens think red is an interesting color and are attracted to dots of it, but they don't care one bit about flat areas of any color, and get used to new things pretty quickly anyway. I'm sure they won't mind having a red house.

    The chickens won't have a problem with your hen house no matter what color you paint it, so as long as you don't live in an association with some kind of color regulations, my advice is to paint it whatever color you like. :eek:)
