    We have a small set of deer antlers that would be perfect size for a chick "jungle gym" in our built in brooder. Anyone know if that material will be ok to use? They have been outside for years, completely sun bleached.

    They should be fine as long as there is plenty of room in the brooder.

    Should be fine.....not a bad idea.....might want to make sure there is no flaking or splintering going on.

    They will end up pretty much completely poop stained tho.
