How do we start the deep litter method in a new coop? I'm about to move our chickens into the new coop and we want to do the deep litter thing. After some research I'm thinking about putting down a 2" deep layer of fine wood shavings (I heard they decompose faster than the big flakes) and then top that with 2" of large flakes. Is this the right way to go about starting out? Is there anything else I need to do prior to move-in, in terms of the litter?
