    Hello Im turning an old pony lean tube in to a chicken coop. I put up an old dog kennel for the run. all i need is a roof and the wire for the to of the run. The coop is 7' by 7' and 6' high A friend gave me preasure treated 2by 4's for the side of the run. Is it ok to use presure treated wood for that? Here are some pics
