    Our chicken run is about 8' x 12' and covered overhead. We have regular south Georgia dirt on the floor and cover it with a bale of pine straw. The ladies make good use of the pine straw and over a period of 3 to 4 months when the straw is all broken down we rake it up with composted dried manue, treat the run good with DE, and put in a new bale of pine straw.
