Wood duck boxes pressure treated wood

Postby longlakesd » Tue Mar 10, 2009 7:52 pm

i am doing a project in school and am allowed to build something and i want to do wood duck boxes but I am pretty sure that I would be using pressure treated wood couldn't I maybe paint something over it to prevent the harmful chemicals of the pressure treated wood which may harm the hens and or eggs of the wood duck??? I will be able to make 4-5 boxes which would be awesome if I can only work around the fact that I might be working with pressure treated wood I will have to ask my teacher.

You really should use rough cut pine, the chicks need rough cut to climb out.

We staple a piece of wire mesh inside the house, under the hole, running from the hole to the bottm of the box to make it easier for the chicks to get out. Don't need rough-cut that way.
