    Okay...dumb question #4.

    I am designing my own roosts at the moment. My home carpentry (such as it is) usually uses plywood and screws and glue. Gorilla Glue is the stick-du-jour.

    Any problems with chickens pecking at or eating glue? I think most glues are completely synthetic today and probably don't have any food value smells
    that might attract them but I can't be sure.

    Thanks In Advance

    Once it dries I doubt there will be any problem. They'll think of plenty of funer things to pick at. I used glue on all my cages and they don't even look at it. Good luck!
