I am new to the site as well as new to having chickens. 2 months ago I started building my own coop (see pic) and 3 weeks ago I was done with it. I went and got 4 Rhode island chicks and now they growing up super fast and healthy . I just wanted to give you guys a little intro.
As you can see on the pic my coop is half covered, and I have been struggling with what to cover the dirt/grass floor it now has. People told me Paver sand, wood ships and etc. I just need to know what to use there. I don't have a flooding problem or anything I just don't want the grass and dirt to be their flooring. If someone could help, it would be really appreciated. the coop is small. The floor its 8ft long by 4ft wide and I'm not planning on getting more chickens lol. (I already trimmed the top roofing panel, this is an old pic lol, bc I know some one would mention that)
FYI- I live in Florida and it usually rains a lot, specially during hurricane season, so I need something that can take rain, dry quick and do not get too smelly, also something that I don't have to change every week (I'm fine changing it once a month if that what it requires though)
