Our land is all sand... dig in it and its like dry beach sand... if i build a coop and do a deep littler floor will this work really well or hurt my deep litter making?


Better off to do deep little on concrete slab floors??

Why not just use what you have, sand works really good in a warmer climate like yours, I use it in my turkeys shed, scoop the poop out as necessary.

I brake for squirrels.

Won't hurt it, but you may need to bring in some 'active' soil if you want a composting type of deep litter to get things started.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

 

Quoting centrarchid:

"Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it."
