Is anyone out there that is NPIP and uses the Deep Litter Method? I have my initial farm inspection in December and I am trying different types of bedding. I loved sand for the summer but it is cold for the winter. I have my 4 coops in a totally enclosed modified horse barn. I worry about the bacteria and such with the deep litter method but my stay completly dry because they are indoors. The chickens have runs that come off the barn on the outside for outdoor time. Any suggestions on this? I do have a call into my avian vet but thought the wonderful people on here might have a say as well!
