Our chicken coop white interior with nesting boxes is finally done! I know many of you didn’t agree with the white paint decision but for me personally, I love it. Something about white paint just makes everything look so clean and fresh.
Painting White Chicken Coop Ideas

We opted to make DIY window screens with a hook to latch them close to cover the existing window screens. After all the work building this chicken coop, the last thing we need is a predator breaking through the window screen.
I will share the window screen tutorial soon but if you look at the image above, you will see that we used wood and heavy mesh to create a swing screen door to cover the window.
Chicken Coop White Interior Walls

We painted the entire inside white and used black rubber floor mats from Tractor Supply to cover the floor. We use the rubber mats in our horse stalls and they are so easy to remove, hose off and clean.
Chicken Coop Layout Inside with Nesting Boxes
We used a handrail to create a couple perches that we fastened to the side of the nesting boxes and wall. I am hoping to find a ladder perch soon that I can also mount to the wall.
Here is the before.
Our white chicken coop layout inside consists of a space for the chickens and a space for food and shavings. We decided to add a couple windows inside the coop for cross ventilation along with a partition screen wall between the alley way and chicken space.
We made a DIY barn sliding door (I will share the tutorial in another post) which worked out perfectly to conserve space. We originally had a swing door in mind but we decided to make the alley way smaller in an effort to allow more space for the chickens so the swing door didn’t work out.

We use the same shavings that we use for the horses, shredded pine. I plan on getting straw for the white nesting boxes as the shavings do not seem to stay put in the boxes. If you have any suggestions for the boxes, message me or leave a comment below. Stay tuned, I will be sharing the chicken coop exterior and chicken porch this weekend!
