Hi All, I have had my flock of BO's for about 5 years now. As the years have passed the paint on the coop has faded and looks worn. I am planning on repainting the coop this spring. For those who have done this before, I have a few questions. 1. Can I paint the coop on the outside while the girls are still living in it? What I mean exactly, is while they are out pecking in the yard, can they be around the fumes when they come in at night. I do not have a separate pen or coop, so if possible I need to paint without relocating the girls. 2. Are chickens prone to pecking at the paint while it is drying. I will be using barn and fence paint from lowes so it takes 48 hours to dry. Thanks. Here are a few pics of my coop when it was spiffy so you can get an idea of my set up and how the fumes will affect them. I have good ventelation, so I am hoping it will not be too much of a problem.
