I finally convinced my DH to let me have chickens (I grew up on a 20-acre hobby farm). We have some spare lumber that we have from taking down a wooden porch/ramp that was on our house when we bought it. I was wondering if someone with more building expertise than I thinks that the 1"x6"x4' flooring boards would be too much of a pain to use as siding? Should I buy similar boards to finish the siding, or should I try to convince DH to invest in a different type of siding? We live in Northern Arkansas, about 100 yards from MO, and winters can be cold, but summers get hot and humid. I plan on having an 8x8 walk-in, dirt floor coop with an 8x16 run. I also plan on using the deep litter method. Any suggestions would be appreciated!
