1. Just rescued a flock on Monday/Tuesday of this week. My knowledge of chickens before that was...nothing. Except I like to eat eggs. So...chicken jargon is lost on me. 2. Built a quickie coop to give the rescue birds a home. 3. I just landed a sweet deal for a 10'Lx10'Wx6'H chain link fence enclosure with gate for $70. I do plan to put a roof over this new run. 4. It will be located in forest terrain under the canopy of oak trees. Shaded for the most part with patches of sunshine poking through. 5. How do I start this deep litter method from the bare bones? I will be using shavings in the coop...cleaning it daily with a cat litter scoop.
