I'm wondering what to do about the untreated 2x4s that make up the run underneath my tractor/coop - I would like to paint it the same color as the coop for cohesiveness - but would exterior latex paint hold up on wood that is directly on the ground and wet grass (and eventual chicken poop)? I could treat the very bottoms with Thompson's water sealer but how far up does that need to go? My fenced part of 2 feet high and there isn't any obvious spot to stop the paint and start the water seal without my making an arbitrary line. What do you other tractor owner do about painting or treating the bottoms of your tractors?
