I have a covered chicken run. Since it's fall and we have a large amount of leaves I have been using those instead of sand/shaving in the run. I add more as the hens shred them up. I know a lot of people use deep litter in the coop, will it work in the run too? I think the run smells better now that I am doing this. I though I could bag some up for use in winter and add them to the run as needed. Them come spring I will have a nice batch of compost for the garden. What do you think??
