Ok, so this site has me considering deep litter method. Question one: Other than ammonia, which will not happen in my coop are there any other more pronounced smells? I have been just picking manure with cat scooper every day. No smells. Question 2: I got the benefits are by creating your own little eco system, it is healthier for the birds, giving them little benificial microbes and stuff. What about other insect life forms? Flies, fleas, lice, mites.,Is there increased chance with litter method?
