    I'm reconsidering painting the inside of my coop. The coop will be finished tomorrow, it hasn't stopped raining in weeks and not likely to anytime soon, and my interior is so patchwork that nothing will make it look spiffy. If it's OK to leave the walls bare I would prefer it. It's walled in a mix of chip board,1X8 and plywood, and very well caulked with no drafts

    Quote:yeah, course you can leave it unpainted. my one concern would be the rating of your chip board. if it's not rated for exterior use, i'd slap some paint on, just to protect it a bit from chicken moisture.
