Greetings,

Thank you for reaching out. Unfortunately there has not been much (if any) research published on the effect of different stains or paints in chicken coops on chickens. That being said, I did find an article by a Home Depot paint department associate who explored this topic, you may find this helpful. http://hartkeisonline.com/2013/08/23/choose-farm-animal-friendly-paints-says-paint-expert/.
