    There are a lot of low VOC paints out now, you can find some at any of the big box stores like Lowe's or Home Depot. I used a regular water-based latex exterior type. I would definitely paint the roosts, even though they may get scratched up.

    I got some white barn paint for my coop interior I hope to find the ambition to get that done after a good clean out. I also have to touch up my coop door. It's looking a little chipped up lately. Always projects...

    Probably because we Minnesotans love to chat, especially over a cup of coffee. I am told we are famed for talking to complete strangers met in stores, doctors offices, the lines at Movie Theatres, Coffee Shops etc.

    What about using Kilz paint for the sealing and mildew/mold killing or blocking properties? (And let it air out). Or is it better to go low VOC.

    We painted our living room with a Behr low VOC paint this summer and I couldn't believe the difference. I used to get headaches when painting, no matter how well ventilated. Nothing!
