Painting Chicken House




Work has finally started on upgrading the large chicken pen. Today I painted three sides of the chicken house. I thought for sure I’d have all three chicken houses painted today since the other two are smaller. Well three sides of this larger house took a gallon of paint. The old ceder plank wood just was so dry it soaked up the latex paint.

I used a cheap paint called Homestead by Valspar that was only 12.99 a gallon at Tractor Supply. Cracked me up because I didn’t read the name of the paint “Homestead” till later. You get what you pay for but it will do for now.

I have a perplexing problem. I need to paint the backside of the house but the wire is in the way and not much gap. I would pull chicken wire back but the bottom half is tacked to a cattle panel. I can’t move house, not an option. Anyone have any ideas without painting the wire?
