What kind of paint, color would you recommend? I'like the natural look
Then look at clear coats?
I am not the right person to ask that, cuz here is what I did in mine:
Wow!! I like the colors! Had thought about a blue/green color. I read another post where someone used linoleum on the floor. Has anyone else done that?
Linoleum helps with clean up
Yah...I forget the hormone adds to the toughness, too. Good Point Minnie. But then any bird using muscles even for a few months is going to be different then those poor souls sitting in big Poultry barns and cages with no where to go.
I'm used to cooking down Wild Turkey meat. It's just different if they're walking around and exercising.
I use the glueless vinyl flooring. You have to tack the edges down or bedding and poop get scootched under and cause a PITA. The vinyl is easier to clean, it saves the wood floor from wet and rotting, and even in winter I am able to get the frozen poop off from it.
When I say tack down, I use a cedar 2x2 all around the edges and screw that down snug. Again, cedar has rot and insect resistent qualities, so it is my choice for anything I don't paint.
Why do you recommend cedar? I still haven't made my roosts and haven't heard of using cedar before. I should really paint the inside of my coop, too.
Cedar sounds great overall, there is no issue regarding the odors/oils?
Fantastic coop, scandiafowl. Question on heat. I wouldn't. Heat goes out and they die because they didn't adapt to the cold. I turn on a lizard light when it gets in the -0. I have it mounted where the chickens or flammable objects can't get to close.
I also have areas at the bottom and at the top that allow for airflow so humidity won't build up. Seems to be the villain when it comes to frostbite with chickens. But my coop is tiny compared to yours.
That is horrible Bog Town. Still no show?
