I want to do the Deep Litter Meathod for the winter but my coop is 6 ft x 11 ft. So I would need A LOT of shavings/bedding and a bag of shavings is $6. So if I bought 10 bags that would be $60!!!!!!!!!! What do you guys do for bedding in the winter? Can I use leaves as bedding? What else can I do to keep my chicken coop warm? I will probably use a heat lamp but should I wrap it with anything? Like tarps/blankets? Are coop is made of all wire but it is inside a big barn with big barn doors. But the barn is still gets pretty cold in the winter.
