    Our coop has about 1 or 2 feet of wood around the bottom but the rest is chicken wire. Would deep liter method work with this kind of coop? If not how could it be fixed?

    It should do just fine. Do you have a good overhang on your roof or would the rain blow into your coop? If not, the bedding should stay pretty dry, especially with all that good air flow. Your litter won't ever be so deep that it tops your 2 ft. of board.
