I was wondering if anyone uses the "deep litter method" for their goat's housing. I don't have a barn, but I have a very sturdy 3 sided, roofed out building for my goats. They can go in and out as they please. ( I realize some will think it dangerous for me to not lock them up at night, but that isn't really an option for me at this point. ) Their housing is out of the wind, and has a dirt floor that has a large stall mat on the ground. I use animal bedding pellets as their bedding material. My goats only go in there if it is raining, very cold and usually at night. As of now, I have been using the wood pellets, and changing it out completely on a need to basis. This seems to be quite often, especially with the weather getting colder and wetter. I was wondering if it would be ok to just remove some of the larger clumps of poo, and add more pellets on top of the old, to create a deep litter type bedding. I know this works well with some folks in their chicken coops. I have read that the composting pellets underneath can provide some warmth to the surface bedding, but I am concerned that the amonia might be a problem, not to mention, I don't want them lying in poo. Anyone do this?
