    Can some of u post oics of their deep litter?? I only do it in the coop floor. Not in their run. Do I just put the poop that's in their boxes (yes they poop in the nest boxes)in the floor for more litter?? Winters getting close. Wanna make sure their warm.

    Deep litter is simply what it sounds like.
    It's litter piled at least 6 inches deep.
    You add more litter if it begins to get too damp or smelly, and all droppings get mixed in
