I ordered 26 chickens (my first ever) and they are due on May 20. I am enclosing an existing open shed that has a concrete floor in it. I've been reading for over a month now and I'm getting a little over-whelmed with information overload. I am really looking forward to raising them but I don't want and can't afford to spend a lot of money on pine shavings and such. I'm not doing this to save money on eggs but I don't want it costing me either. I think I would like to put something down on the concrete but I've read sooo many options I just don't know what. I have many more questions I will post in the near future but I have to get past this one first.
