    Hi :welcome

    Glad you could join the flock! I'm sorry but I've never heard of Masonite but here is the coop section with some great ideas for brooders. I'm sure other greeters will be along soon who will be able to help you.:frow

    Wishing you the very best of luck in the future and hope you enjoy BYC

    I would think so, if the smooth side faced the chicks, so they can't peck at fibers. My dad used to use the 2' x 4 'pegboards to make a lot of things, they were very, very cheap way back when. You are probably talking about a much better grade. But I think they would do fine.
