What kind of 'floor' do you have in the coop? Not sure you'd want a damp, truly composting deep litter on a wooden floor.....it would eventually rot it out. Would work better in a dirt floored coop, tho could/can effect the walls if too deep. I like to keep the coop and floor as dry as possible so use kilned dry pine shavings about 4-6" deep with a total change out once a year. But I use poop boards to collect night droppings, sifting them out every other day.
