I painted my newly built coop today...it's the prettiest grass-green color. The girls would NOT stay away from it and kept running around the coop, climbing in and out while I painted. Now all three have some green paint on their feathers. One even got it all over her feet. I picked her up and had my daughter try to wipe off her feet and legs as best she could, but it's still there. It's not too noticeable on the Buff Orpington or the Black Orpington, but my gorgeous white/grey Coronation Sussex looks ridiculous!
