    Coop floor question....
    I accidentally used treated wood for the floor of the coop .(its all put up now.)
    .Wonder if using linolium on the floor would work as far as keeping the chickens from being poisoned by the arsenic etc gases or should i paint it with waterproof paint (low VOC )and then put down the sheet vinyl
    OR just use a sheet of untreated wood over the treated then vinyl flooring
