    Hi Folks,

    I have 6 pullets and I've done a lot of research on Pre-Fab Chicken coops as oppose to building one from scratch. I have everything nailed down except for the material for the flooring. I'm thinking of using Epoxy as I've seen it being used on a lot of the Amish coops which look pretty well built. The question I have is whether this is the same epoxy that you purchase at Home Depot, which is used to apply on top of concrete garage floors. And if so, how well does that perform on resin floors?

    Lost, I fear.
    :welcome Foglong!
    Unfortunately, my knowledge of building materials is limited to the basics, so I'll just give you a welcome. ;)

    [​IMG] You might try putting "coop flooring," in the search box above. Some folks put down linoleum (easy to clean) and cover with pine shavings.
