As a newbie to raising chickens I am pondering what is best for the bedding in my coop and run. I am thinking I'll try the deep litter method inside the coop. However, I want to put sand in the boxes under the roosts so I can just scoop away the droppings daily. Thoughts? What is recommended to put in the run? Just leave the ground as is or put some sort of bedding down? We live in Northeast Ohio and get warm summers and cold winters and usually several feet of snow. I am enjoying all the research and knowledge from all the postings. Happy Henning!!!!!
