I live in spain and have 5 chickens and 2 ducks in a run on my terrace, I am wanting to know what is the bedding for them. I keep getting different answers when I speak to people so wanted your advice. Currently they are on straw in their run and in their house they have a mix of straw and shavings. My ducklings are only a few weeks old so they are in a little pen within the chicken pen and they are on shaving and straw mix but it does need cleaning out more due to them splashing water everywhere. Any advice would be appreciated a tend to clean them out once a week and the house every couple of weeks.
