    Sorry to give you the dreaded, "do a search" reply, but the topic has been covered and there is far more information in past posts than one person can give you in a reply.
    Basically use it for ground touching timbers and use untreated for the rest. Chickens do not chew on wood, so its not real harmful to them.
