    We're getting ready to line our coop (pretty small) with sheets of linoleum (for ease of cleaning). In order to keep everything nice and water-tight, I'd like to caulk the seams, but I'm a little worried about the chickens pecking at the caulk and potentially eating some. Think it's a problem? they will of course have tons of bedding covering it up, but I'm sure that won't keep them from getting to it. Thanks!

    I doubt it'll hurt them, but it will need to be redone fom time to time.

    You also could use some wood strips to hide the seams or put some construction adhesive under the seams and remove the excess. Another option if you haven't put up the walls yet is to put the linoleum under the walls so it's seamless. Just leave an extra inch around the perimeter so it doesn't stick out too far.
