I need a little advice. My son and I are new to chickens, and we have started out with just 2 bantams, but we are going to be expanding our family in the coming months. Our coop will not be very large, and the max chickens we are limiting ourselves to is 10 total. My quandry concerns the deep litter method. I have planned on using the basic set up from the 2 story coop on the coop picture page, but adding 2x6 boards around the bottom story to allow for litter containment. We live in Louisiana, and the humidity can get high here.. is the deep litter method the best idea for our coop? What other options could we use? I know cleaning the shavings out once a year would not be enough for this size coop, as I don't want to get the litter too deep for our bantams. I need feedback please!! There are so many wonderful chicken experts here, and everyone has been so helpful already!
