We are still working on our coop. Seems to be taking forever! :hmm I am planning on painting the nesting boxes today before they get attached to the coop. We have a ton of partial cans of paint from many projects over the years. I thought it would be fun to use up some of the paint and make each box a different colour. It will be interesting to see if the hens (when I get some) will have any preferences. 🤔😊

Yes. Definitely will post pictures when it is done. Not having much luck at the moment. Half the colours I was hoping to use were dried up. I was shaking one can before opening to determine the colour and the handle gave away from the side of the can creating a big hole and spraying paint everywhere! 🥵 Turns out it was only white, but what a mess. Note to self: always change into painting clothes before doing anything with paint! 😳

I have a little can of red but I think it best to pass on the red as it would look too much like blood. 🤪😐 That leaves me with dark pink, light blue, deep turquoise, grey, or light green.

Will be curious to see if the colors obviously affect nest choice.
Will there be a front lip(4-6" high) on nests?
