Siding or no siding?

My coop is insulated (4"walls) so there are 2 layers of plywood and 1 layer of insulation between the chickens and the weather.
Question is - should I side it or just paint the outside plywood? I think I am too lazy for siding plus I don't want to pay for the materials...

Just slap some decent "weatherproof" paint on it and be done! And good job on getting it built to start with

Just my 2 cents.

Wait a minute, you *tiled* your coop but you balk at some measly siding????

LOL

It really doesn't matter much from a functional standpoint. Good siding will last longer than 'enh' plywood, but even just plywood will last a good long while if you seal all seams/gaps and prime and paint it well. So, whatever floats your boat

Heck you could tile the outside, some sort of fancy mosaic type deal
