    If you have leftover stain, that would be good. Paint can chip, which the chickens will eat. Stain gets absorbed and cannot chip so I think that would be preferable.

    You don't really need to paint or stain the inside, of course. The chicken's can't talk, so they won't say mean things about their unpainted walls. [​IMG]

    I used paint inside my coop to help protect the wood, but I just made sure it was non-toxic. If you decide to use paint, you will have to keep an eye on it to make sure it doesn't start chipping.
