I have a dirt floor in my coop. I also have a "doggy door" that stays open, as the outdoor run is chain link with a top. (very secure) My problem? The coop is a mess! I bed it with shavings, and they get tromped into the mud. (yuck!) I think my roof is leaking- its getting pretty wet in there. Im going to get the hotshot after my husband to get my coop roof sealed up, and an actual door on my "chicken door" My question- can I bed my coop with sand to keep it a little cleaner? Will it harm my birds? I could use a fine toothed manure fork to clean out droppings. What do you think?
