I have a 10X10 resin shed with a thick waterproofed floor for the chickens coop.
I been keeping about a 3" deep pine shaving layer inside the coop, but I have about 12" layer of pine shavings on their play yard. Otherwise they would be wading in mud. They also like to scratch in it and kick it around.
I cleaned out the floor of their coop once when there wasn't but about 6" of litter on the floor. So, do you think that it's okay to add more pine shavings to the coop. It would certainly help with the oder problem.
With the wood shaving, how can I get them the grit and oyster shell that they need? It gets lost in the shavings if I put it on their floor.
Would they get enough when they free range in the afternoons?
