I have 5 4mo old chickens who are well adjusted to their coop, but now I have decided that I would like to paint it. Do you believe it could be safely painted, dried, and ventilated for them if I were to paint this in the morning, let it dry during the day, and return it in the evening to them? Also, what would be the best products to use when doing this?

I use outdoor weather resistant paint on my coops. However, when I could build (my disease has robbed me of that), there were no birds living in it at the time. Everything needs to be done and dry with the fumes out before you put them back in as a matter of safety.

I always did in and out. For instance, my red part build, had red on the outside, with white accents, and white on the inside, with white 4x8's for the long run, and a heap of hardware cloth. Back when I could build, I built the door, by hand, so I could get a wheel barrel through the door in the long run. I even made a cement slab so I could rake out where they have their roost, nesting boxes, etc. It was quite an undertaking, to putting on the roof. I loved it when I could build things. I was self taught with a few quibbles from the neighbor, who said, I would have done it this way or that way.
