1. Is it better to use hay/ straw or is pine shavings better? Right now I have straw and it seems to attract the flies. I did have it in the coop and their yard, but now only have it in their coop.
2. Do I need to feed them veggies and other " goodies" every day? Or is the laymash and scratch enough?
3. Does the coop need to raised off the ground? Right now there is no floor, just the ground. My coop is not enclosed completely (we live in California where it's sunny 360 days a year) does it still need to be enclosed?
This is what my coop looks like. But now I have put more wood over the top for shade and the door on the left has been taken out
