I have a coop with a linoleum floor. I tried deep litter for 8 months, even adding some soil, but nothing was composting. Then I tried dropping boards with sweet PDZ (my favorite, but my shoulders can't take it). I have sand in the coop right now, but I don't like it, and it is pretty smelly although I clean it every day. I would like to be able to do deep litter, and I wonder if I put down an inch of garden soil first, will it work?
