I started the deep litter method today. I sprinkled the coop with diotamaceous earth and then covered the floor with wood shavings. I also set up a manure board and I built a pedestal to sit the food and water on to keep it out of the litter. Am I missing any key components? Do you have any aditional suggestions for maintaining a healthy flock. I just went from two birds to 7, so I am a little concerned about keeping them all healthy.
