Just needs painting! Yay! DO I NEED SHAVINGS ON FLOOR OF COOP?I know I need them in the nesting boxes. They are closed off for a bit as they needed encouragement to roost. CAN I DEEP BED RUN AND NOT COOP? My coop has pine shavings and a floor with 1/2 inch hardware cloth. The coop is raised and the poop and shavings drop into the run with a little encouragement from flat edge of a rake. The run is 14 feet, covered and I have 5 chickens. We have mild weather and the run has remained dry. When I research the deep bed method, I seem to only find reference to coop maintenance.I am obviously new to chickens and am loving them!
