    I have extra room in the chicken coop (away from the birds)...is it okay ot store several bales of hay in there to feed the other animals, or will this contribute to mite problems?

    It is sometimes posted that long grass clippings and hay can contribute to impacted crops.
    I don't know myself if it is true, but thought I'd throw it out there.

    Good luck
