With deep litter, you only have to clean it out yearly. Just add fresh shavings as it decomposes. If you notice ammonia smell, it's too wet. It should smell like dirt.Brilliant my coop int as big so I dont know what to do with the roost with it just been a metre square but in the coop i might do simular and put pine shavings on the floor and put treets in there to get the chickens workings and clean it out monthly
That's lots of room. Each bird has 21 square feet of space!Three small fowl and a 8 x 8 foot run Approx its slightly bigger tbh and i bought a book and followed that basicaly saying there is plenty of room with a 13 x 13 space im the coop for each bird im in uk and know people including a local collage who keep two birds in like a apex rabbit hutch a run and there happy birds!!
