    I have a little banty coop I need to paint and Im not sure what to paint on it. I have three different colors. The one is more of a reddish color. Not orange like the picture shows. And then the green is sorta like a seafoam green. These were "oops" paints I bought super cheap from WalMart. Anybody have any ideas on what I could do?

    I think all red or all green would look good! I am half way done painting mine brown.

    I think you should try and coordinate the colors with your house. If you can't do that, then anything in the Barn Red colors.

    I read that in a test hens preferred the color red to any other color [​IMG] strange

    Im not wanting to do the normal one solid color. Im wanting something more unique and different. I planned on using a mix of these three different colors. I plan on going tomorrow after work and see if they have any more colors for sale.

    Ohh, if I could get another color or two. I could do polka dots and stripes. That would be cute! Thanks.​

    Put in a lot of detailed trim! Have a base color for the coop, then do the window and door trim up. You could expand on the colors you have by adding a little white to any of them as well. Here is a picture of what I'm thinking. You could do this, but with the colors you have. [​IMG]

    That was sorta my original idea to go with. Because I have 3 maybe 4 more small coops to go. I wanted something different, but not to wildly out there.
