    Hi all! We have an old building we are converting one room of into the chicken coop. It has a concrete floor. I am planning on putting litter down, but was wondering if I need to seal the concrete or something like that?

    Thx!

    Mine has a plastic/resin floor. I put down old carpet with shavings on top. Then each year, I roll up the carpet and toss it. Roll down some new used carpet and put shavings back on. Super clean!
