We are trying to get our coop ready for chickens coming home to it in the next week or two!! We have a child's playhouse to use as a coop (Chicken Mansion ) the inside is not painted. My husband made a nice feeding box and is getting ready to make the nesting boxes. What I would like to know is if we should paint them with specail paint or if any paint will do. I have read on here a little and searched about painting with Lyme. I am wondering if this is something I should look into doing. Please offer any advice. We used some scrap wood for the feed box, and will be using it for the nesting boxes. I want to paint it to make it look nice (every chicken needs to have something white to make dirty - right?) I just need to know what paint would be best. Thank you all for your thoughts.
