I boosted this for two reasons, I only use deep sand in the run, I live in Central Illinois so I get real cold, if you keep it raked, it stays nice and clean and soft all winter. My coop is deep litter ~6" of pine shavings, Nesting box is mix of straw, pine, and herbs. I sprinkle DE in the boxes and coop floor about once a month.
My new Coop is going to be larger, and I am leaning towards using Artificial Turf for lining the nesting boxes, I have also built these boxes to be a slight roll back so we don't have to go in the coop to collect. I am also setting this coop up for the deep litter coop floor, Pine shavings and straw, during the cooler months, I'm going to leave it bare floor for easier cleaning in the summer. I used fiberglass reason on the floor, and wrapped it up the sides about 6 inches, so I should be able to just hose it out good.
I'm mainly into chickens(24, about 4 different breeds) and I had 2 Eastern Turkey's down to one now. I've just decided this year to add some Indian runners. so I'll let you know how that works.
