We are going to be building a coop soon and have started buying supplies, however we are unsure what type of wood we should be using. I was thinking treated pine would be fine but my husband is worried about the treated pine being poisonous to the chickens. We have termites near by in a big tree and the are also in the bush land, so they would most likely be an issue if didn't use treated pine. Is it safe to use a treated pine and then paint or varnish the wood? We have also thought of making a metal frame to lift the coop off the ground to deter termites and then using an untreated pine/wood. What are your thoughts?
