    should I paint the bottom plywood floor to the new chicken coop?

    Paint would probably make it last longer. Another option might be to find some cheap vinyl - remnants at your local Big Box store.

    I don't have a wood bottom coop so don't have real world experience. We used HardieBacker for our poop boards, for what that's worth.

    Welcome to BYC - paint won't hurt - and might even help.

    Hi and welcome to BYC from northern Michigan [​IMG]

    Anything you do to seal the wood and protect it from moisture will help it last longer and be easier to clean. I use vinyl floor covering and it works great.
