First, I heard that putting straw down in a chicken coop is not preferable. I have one coop with my girls in and they have wood shavings, but I have some polish hens that have been raised now with my four Indian runners and I think I will keep them together because they get along so well in another coop, now I have put straw down for the ducks but am thinking of putting wood shavings for both, what should I do.? Is wood shaving okay for the ducks? My ducks have not laid eggs yet, someone told me duck eggs taste terrible, any opinions on this, I have never tasted one before. Thanks so much for any answers.
