I am building my first chicken coop, and I have a question about Eastern Cedar wood. I have read several threads about this, but I can not find a clear answer on using cedar as building material (I know using cedar chips is a bad idea). We have a large amish community and several sawmills that they operate. I have a good amish friend who owns a sawmill and I bought a huge truckload of cedar boards for $10 (that's right, TEN DOLLARS). Being so cheap, insect resistant, and weather resistant, I want to build my coop with this if it is safe. It has never been treated or chemically infused, it is all natural, raw lumber. So, does anyone know if it would be safe to build the coop and run out of this for sure? I live in Tennessee and it is local trees that have been cut for this wood. Thanks.
