    Roof is 8 ft. x 10 ft.
    single pitch, no gable
    3:12 pitch
    I am in MA
    rafter spacing is 2 ft. OC
    will have felt, drip edge and 'regular' asphalt (non-roll type) shingles on top

    i suspect i am okay, just checking, though

    With the felt and shingles I don't see any issues.

    That'll do it. CDX is better than what I am using. I am using the el cheapo 7/16" osb for $7.96 a sheet. Just make sure that the chickens will not run theheads into the exposed nails on the underside OR finish the inside so that is not possible.
