New to chickens and have been doing a lot of searching and learning a lot in the process. However I'm kind of at a crossroads regarding what maintenance method in the coop will work best for me. It must come from my line of work but I'm meticulous about doing things right the first time. In other words I want to be sure the method I commit to, when the chicks move into the coop, is the one that will work for the long haul. Whether a person searches the deep litter method or using sand on the coop floor here on BYC, it's an understatement to say a lot has been written regarding each subject. I've read all the virtues of each method and become further conflicted the more I read . To help figure this out, thought it would be good to hear from those that have actually tried both methods and hear actual comparisons. So who's tired both? What did you like or dislike of each? Thank you.
