    I once read somewhere there is a way to line the floor of the coop so it will not need to be cleaned all winter. Does anyone know how to do that. I think that we are in for a bad winter.

    I think you're thinking of deep litter method DLM.

    I use pine shavings about 4 inches deep with DE and a product called Stall Dri that I got at Tractor Supply and my coop is dry with minimal odor
