Hi I am new to BYC and have been reading about Deep Litter for coops. I am in the process of rebuilding my coop it will be 24 x 18 when I am done. Since I plan to have fifty or sixty chickens and guineas in a very large coop on the ground it makes sense to do Deep litter. I absolutely love Rice hulls for the horse and want to do deep litter for the chickens with them. This way I wont have to do two different products. I guess the question I have is how deep do I make the litter to start with. thanks in advance for any info deb "in the San Diego high desert"
