Chick Newbie here... In a few weeks my 24 chicks will be moving out of the house to the 'big girl' coop (I CAN'T WAIT but that's another story). LOL!!! I have not yet decided on what type of bedding to use in the coop and have read a great deal of conflicting advice re: sand vs. shavings. I have a concrete floor in the coop and I have heard that the deep litter method only works well on a dirt floor. The climate here (in Ontario) is freezing cold in the winter and often blazing hot for three months of summer. The chickens will spend the nights in the coop and have access to an outdoor run, which is sand, in the daytime. I am willing to muck out the coop on an 'almost daily' basis and can add PDZ or horse stall freshener or DE if necessary. The coop is dry and quite well ventilated. So –– sand, shavings, or other options? Any advice or insights would be VERY much appreciated!!!
