    Next week I'll be painting the coop, and I'm not sure what brand to use. I was thinking a stain for outside (the wood of the coop is pine) and on the inside I'd like a durable, glossy paint I can scrub. Any tips on brands and where to buy? Thank you!!

    I went with stain that is suppose to last "35" years inside and out. I figured that if I spend a little bit more now and didn't have to refinish it in a few years that the cost of the new stain and my time was worth the extra expense now. I also didn't choose paint because when it gets old and starts flaking off the chickens will eat it.
