    Does anyone know where to buy this online? It is not carried locally.

    I use sand on the floor of my coop and the run. My girls are still too young to have started using the nest boxes yet but is this what you would suggest for putting in the nest boxes? I'm very intrigued!
    @ADozenGirlz I know you use sand as well, in the winter would you try using the Koop Clean on top of the sand to help with more bedding or insulation? Or will you stick to just the sand? I'm in Wisconsin so it gets bitterly cold.

    Thanks!

    It's really a personal preference. You could use the Koop Clean mixed into the sand. I don't believe it's going to make much of a difference from an insulation standpoint though. Better to focus on excellent ventilation and keeping the coop clean and dry.

    The price is double of shavings but works sooooo much better!! It dries the poop out and smells great! I have cleaned my coop like 3 times and only used 1 bag! Highly recommend!!

    I too have been concerned about this...I have vinyl on my coop floor, I just rake it in the morning to fluff it up and I add to it rather than clean out completely now so its a nice thick landing
