    I've tried lots of bedding and very little bedding, but it's always so dusty in my little chicken barn. Anybody have any ideas,suggestions?

    If you find a solution to this you would be a millionaire! We all would like less dust!

    Ventilation! During the hot days my 4x14 coop had 160 square feet of welded wire for walls. Now that it is cold it has 40 square feet of exposed wire wall. Huuuuuge increase in dust and morning stink.

    Chickens produce feather dust, so there's no getting around that part. I suppose some bedding is dustier than others, so you could be adding to the situation with your bedding.
