I've read on BYC that cedar shavings are harmful to chickens - i hope that coops made from cedar don't!

Most cedar lumber is not the aromatic variety.....

......and the fact that it is not in tiny pieces makes it pretty safe for building with, it is also insect resistant.

 

Aromatic cedar shavings can be irritating to avian respiratory systems. 

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!
