    We have enough Corian (white) left over to do the coop floor -- it would be nice for cleaning, but will it be too slick for the chickens and/or me? Other ideas? Linoleum or something like that?

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    If you kept the corian covered with wood shavings, that would work out nicely for cleaning.......Otherwise it would get slippery.....

    I would use that commercial traction tape they use on stairs. Maybe a strip like every 3" inches, that would prevent slips, then you could put sand or something on top

    Personally, I'd toss a bunch of straw all over the floor. It's so easy to pick up clumps of straw, then rake & sweep if needed.

    corian....like countertop corian? it will be slippery even with shavings........Also conside the weight. Floors in houses need reinforcement before installing often
