What are the pro's and con's of laminate tiled coop floors
the pros: very very easy to clean and disinfect. You can glue the floor down and make it fairly waterproof, and if you glue it down well enough then mites and lice cannot take up residence underneath.
the cons: sometimes it can be slippery. If your breed of chickens is big and clumsy -- like the cornish cross or the Jersey giants -- then they might have trouble with that. And if the laminate gets water underneath it then the water won't dry out very well, and that would cause mold problems.
Thank tha helps I was wondering what floor would be the best.
What would a safe strong glue be to add to the peel-n-stick type? Or is that a no-no...solid piece only?
Thanks so much!
what about a particle board floor with just wood shavings over it?

I can tell you what I do, I have plywood flooring with a cover of shower mat that goes under the shower during construction and it works great no problems at all.
