    I recently purchased a coop that has a wire floor and exposed insulation on the ceiling. Would plywood be the best option for covering the insulation and adding a solid floor? Thanks!

    i used plywood for my coop (ceiling, walls and floor)

    plywood would be fine for the ceiling

    but the floor.. it will warp if exposed to water

    so might be best to coat it with 2-3 layers of waterproof finish (be sure to let it air dry for 72 hours before moving your chickens in to avoid respiratory problems)
