I don't see why not, many people don't even use diatomaceous earth, it's just about keeping the droppings and bedding well enough mixed and dry enough that there's no amonia smell. Obviously just make sure your ash is well and truly cold smile.png

If you want a truly composting deep litter, do not use DE or any insecticide component.

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!!!
