We are about finished with our first coop. Is there any reason NOT to paint the interior? Will it harm the chickens? I thought it would make it easier to clean and more durable.

Painting makes the cleaning easier... make sure it is semi gloss

I painted the inside. Used an exterior latex paint + primer. It turned out very nice. Now if we stop having thunderstorms when I am off work, I can get the outside painted! Going to use barn red and make the trim white.

Hmmm why semi gloss? Is flat exterior ok for the outside?? I could not decide when I was buying the paint but decided $40 in paint was enough and I did not need semi-gloss. Maybe I was wrong?
