    Granny you said something about using pine straw. Can I use that? Do the chickens pick up chiggers from that. Probably a dumb question because they walk in it all the time. Sure would save us some money. Any of y'all think it would be ok to use. ? If so, I won't buy hay no more.

    I do not recommend pine straw for the coop. I raked some up once for the bottom of the coop once, and it was awful. It was not absorbent at all. Made a huge mess. For the bottom of the run, mixed with leaves and grass, I'm sure they'd have a great time scratching around!!

    I know! :/ Us too. We let the grass grow really high and cut it, then I'd rake that up like hay. I think the long grass helped keep the chicken from scratching it bare. I still have a beautiful yard and get lots of compliments from buyers.

    Thanks granny. Maybe in a week or three I'll be done. You know of anyone putting bike tries on the top of the swing and turning it on it's side and rolling it where ever they want to move it? I'm thinking it'll work ok but I'm not sure. Anyone ever seen this done?
