    Is the cedar old or sealed? The oil is aromatic and can damage their lungs.

    none of our lumber is treated everything is fresh off the tree...these slabs came stright off our cedar tree's...thanks for the input..i done alot of research on cedar before we built it and it states that as long as you do not use any treated lumber....the chicken's will be fine.....alot of chicken farmer's use cedar shavings to help with mite's and other pest....
