    I have my coop just about done and I NEED to get the birds out of the garage but also need to paint the outside of the coop. Is there any issues with painting the outside while they will be in there during the nights. I was planning on letting them out in the morning and then painting during the day and then putting em back in at night. I would think it woudl be ok but wanted some advise.

    They should be fine. After the paint is dry, just stick your head inside the coop and see if there is any paint smell (there shouldn't be). You're right to think about issues like this, though, because birds have very efficient respiratory systems and are sensitive to air quality issues.
