Thanks! I have one other question...my tractor coop has a sliding tray. What should I put in the tray, news papers, shredded stuff or what?
post #57 of 59
Dgrundy if I were you I would fill it with chicken bedding, if you don't have that shredded newspaper should be fine.

Great, I'll get bedding, thanks for your help!
