The floor of my chicken coop is pressure-treated plywood (8'x10' coop) and I now have 11 chickens that have been living in it for close to 1 1/2 years. Maintenance has gotten crazy with the plywood because it's very difficult to clean and I would really like to paint it with latex gloss. My question is this: This is the only place that I can keep the hens safe at night, but the floor really needs to be painted; how can I safely paint the floor even though I don't have a week to let it air out? Will the hens be okay if I paint it in the morning and let it air out the whole day? Since the existing floor has had chicken poo on it, can I just paint over it with the latex or does it need a barrier? Thank you!
