    We just had a few very large limbs cut from our pecan tree and a crab apple tree. My question is if there are types of wood that chickens shouldn't be around? I want to put one or two of the logs in their run for playing and standing on. Also my husband is burning some and I wanted to use the ash in their coop for dust bathing and want to make sure it will be safe for them.

    Only wood I've read about that is possibly dangerous is cedar.
