Concrete or just leave the dirt?

  1. Concrete under the bedding, easier to muck.

  2. Dirt, since it doesn't matter that much when you do deep litter.

    Should I lay some concrete mix in my coop or just leave it dirt? We do the deep litter method if it matters.

    I vote concrete or solid flooring. Eventually something will try to dig into your coop.

    Ya, I am not into this a crazy amount so I can "splurge" on some bags of concrete. LOL The hardware store always have a bin in the back with ones with tears in the corners of the sacks for $1, 1/2 full 50 cents.
