I used a rough tile on my coop floor. (Left over from the kitchen floor). I glued them to the plywood floor with construction adhesive and sealed between them with caulk (very tight seams). I use a good layer of wood chips on top. The chickens move the chips around and expose the tile in places but it not as slick as vinyl flooring.

No one has tried to eat any grout or tile. My floor slopes to a 6' double dutch door for easy cleaning. The tile should make it an easy sweep.
