A long time ago in a galaxy far far away, when I was a child my family raised a small flock of chickens for eggs and meat. Fast forward to the present and this galaxy, my wife and I have decided to start raising chickens for our family's egg and meat needs. I've decided the best set up for us would be a movable chicken tractor. I'm at a point before I go any further, to possibly paint the inside with a white latex barn paint. I would like to do this so for easy cleaning when necessary. My father says that's a bad idea because the chickens will peck at the paint, eat the paint chips, and poison the eggs & meat. I've also seen several examples on the internet of painted coop interiors. Any thoughts and opinions on this would be highly appreciated. Thanks.
