The chicken coop has been primed and all the screw holes and spaces are caulked and it’s ready to be painted.
Vince thinks it looks good white. Do you think he really thinks it looks good or do you think he’s tired of painting?
I’m so hoping that by the end of the weekend, we can have the two batches of bigger chickens in there and can move the bantams into the shop.
Maybe some color on the windows. But Vince is probably done painting or thinks he is. 😉
I like the white, especially with the hot summers you have there. I need to get one built in the next month for my new babies. Most likely it will be white too, but backyardchickens sure has some pretty colorful ones. Slowly but surely for you Judy, life returns…..it’s the little things that add the joy.
Oh yeah, in TX I’d leave it white… and paint the roof white too! Wonderful coop, Vince did a great job!
Ohhh, it’s so adorable.
I think I agree with Roberta….there is, maybe, an accent color needed somewhere but white is good with me, also!
it looks like a chicken palace! 🙂

Not white, it wouldn’t look white for long. Go with the colors you picked out. I’m sure Vince wants to do a little more painting. This looks really nice!

I vote for a little color…somewhere!
Leave the windows and trim white and paint the coop barn red like a proper farm out building should be.
Looks nice. Wouldn’t white be color for the hot sun. I realize it’s in the shade of a tree, but it looks cooler than a darker color. Whatever you decide, the chicken will love it. They won’t care.

I always vote for any sort of color even if it’s just one side–like the front. The comment about the white getting dirty though is something to consider especially with all your wind!
That is the cutest coop! It just needs little beds and little quilts. Wouldn’t that make it perfect?!

It’s just adorable those chicken are going to love it. Vince did a fantastic job in an amazingly short time. So much fun to see the next step and see if the babes like it. Of course they will, it’s home.
I have a question for you – why can’t the Bantams live in the house with the big chickens? We never had Bantams when we were growing up so have no experience with them at all. Will Vince be building another coop just for them?
