    Is pressure treated plywood okay for the floor of coop? Or is the chemical in the lumber harmful to chickens? Thanks.

    I don't know, I used pressure treated wood for everything we built and pressure treated plywood for the walls and roof. I just put laminate tile squares on the floor to make for easier clean up under the pine shavings. No problems that I know of from using it. [​IMG]

    I would be concern about it if it get wet once and a while, but if you cover it with some laminate, then I don't see any problem.
    Please do some research on line before taking my word on it.
    Good Luck.
