I have 2 coops and 6 hens, all pekins.
One of the coops is off the ground with a ramp and the other is on the ground. In the sheltered parts of the coop I put a layer of sawdust down but it ends up outside and then blows around my garden and generally looks a mess. If I am in then the chooks have free range of the garden but if I am out they have their coop and their run.
Is there any alternative so that I don't have to use sawdust?
Or is there a magic way of stopping the sawdust spreading everywhere?
I only have one garden and it isn't very big so it looks a mess!
