    our coop is all wood but im having a problem with the cracks between the door and the hen door, ect. the problem is that the chicks just kick the shavings out, i probably put about 4 inchs of shavings in there and they are now pretty much walking on floor so does anyone know of anything that i can "fill" these cracks with that wont be harmfull or "enticing" to the birds. or get ruined by the weather.i thought about that "great stuff" foam sealer stuff or whatever its called but DH said that stuff doesnt work that it gets hard and cracks..... and advice????
