    We are building our first coop. It is 4x8 with Nesting boxes that are on each side and measure 3' 5" by 1' 1" and will be divided into 3 nests. What kind of materials do you suggest we use on the floor and inside walls to chicken poop proof our coop? What is easy to clean? Thanks!

    I painted my floor and then put down linoleum. I like how easy linoleum is to clean, but it has ripped a couple places in two year's time. I did not paint my walls, but you may want to as it should be easier to wipe/scrap if painted.

    i would say linoleum, or if bigger rubber mats on the walls. linoleum or metal siding, that is what i have.
