I am in suburb of Houston. I have one RIR layer and a Barred Rock chick. It is so hot outside, I feel so sorry for them. My house is big enough I could keep them inside. I need suggestions for poop odor containment! My question is: What are some good ways to do this. I have a large dog kennel, but need suggestions for flooring/base. Pine shavings are so messy when she scratches. Could I use a kitty litter tray under the cage? Next: she knocks over her water all the time. Can chickens be trained to drink from rabbit type water bottles? I do let her free range for several hours also for dust bath etc. Thanks for any setups/suggestions.
