    Iv seen plenty of people sand and stain PVC to look like wood. Woundering if it would be OK in a coop for the chicks(chemical). Making a waterer and feeder from PVC. TIA

    G’Day from down under Chads Coop [​IMG] Welcome!

    Sorry, I too am not able to help with your question but hopefully the folks on the Forum Ken gave you a link to can. I tend to go with my gut and if I have any doubts as to the safety, choose a different path.

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    You might want to also pop in and say hello on your local thread: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/26/where-am-i-where-are-you ‘Find your State’s thread.

    If you would like to share pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]

    I like to err on the side of caution. So I would replace the PVC or ignore it. Chickens don't care.
