OK...New Egg here. I am just beginning investigating what I need to build a coop and I have several 10' lengths of cedar siding in my workshop. From what I understand on this post it is OK to use these on the siding of the coop but I need to avoid cedar shavings on the ground of the run? What can people tell me about the harm of cedar to chicks and hens? Is there another forum thread I should read? I fell so uninformed. Also, can anyone recommend a good book on coop building? I don't mean to hijack this thread but was just curious.
