Can I use quarter inch siding for my coop?
Yes, you can, but it won't be very strong. I made a small coop from quarter inch, but, I have it completely inside a secure run.
I would suggest 1/2" or 5/8" instead, for strength.
I think that you can use just about anything. The real issue is how long it will last. I would make sure to paint the 1/4 inch plywood, especially along the edges, so that it resists weathering.
Thanks for the replies. I'm building chicken tractors and was thinking about the weight. I will probably try one and one of 1/2 in. also. I wish I had more time to be on this forum, it's great.
I was looking at some concrete siding today. It come in a 4x8 sheet of planks. How would the sheet stuff work. I don't have to worry with bears here. I don't think I do.
