How To: Finishing your Chicken Coop

Finishing your chicken coop is the most exciting part of the project. Here you can put in a lot of personality and color. You should paint the outside of the coop to protect it from weather, and the inside floor of the coop to protect your birds from mildew and other elements.

Materials needed:

  • Chicken Wire (not much)

  • 1 gallon exterior paint

  • 1 quart accent exterior paint

  • 1 quart primer (we used Kilz Premium Primer)

Tools:

  • Paint brushes

  • Rollers

  • Paint pan

  • Drop cloth (for ramp)

  • Staple gun
