    I am totally new to chickens and just purchased a pre-made coop. I am planning on using the DLM, along with linoleum for ease of clean-up. Anything I should be cautious of with this combination? Also, ant thoughts on keeping the food and water conatiners shaving free? My girls make a MESS!!! I have them elevated a bit, but was wondering if putting them on cinder blocks is OK?

    I use cinder blocks---just keep an eye out for any sick chickens. When they get sick/disoriented they are less likely to stand up & reach the food & water. It is so hot here I do a double-check for dehydrated chooks.

    But, if you always have an healthy flock, this is a non issue.
