    Beautiful coop! We painted our white inside, so it was easier to clean. Not sure about any other sealant. Good luck!

    WELCOME :ya

    Glad you are here!

    I did not seal the inside of my coop; I only stained/sealed the outside of my coop because of the big swings in weather here. The stain/sealant I used was Olympic Maximum that is non-toxic. I thoroughly let all of the stained/sealed wood dry (about a month) before my girls were introduced to their coop. But as other posters mentioned above, since you are in England, you may want to find out from your neighbors what, if any, sealant or stain they used and if they did it on the inside.

    This is a great forum and any/all questions you have will be answered by members who are extremely knowledgeable and have tons of experience. Come back often!

    Here in the States, we have a product called "THOMPSON'S WATER SEAL". It can be applied with a pump spray, a handheld squirt bottle or paint brush/sponge brush.
    It can be applied with one coat up to several coats.
    I'm sure there is something comparable their in the UK, to this product.

    Thanks for joining our forum.. welcome.gif
