I have two chickens and have previously used pine shavings for litter, but this summer I tried sand. It worked great until it started to get cold and now my chickens tend to stay inside and the sand gets really gross and damp. My coop is pretty small and hard to get into to clean. I was wondering about using dry leaves, but had heard that maple leaves are not good for chickens. Should I try the leaves or just go back to pine shavings. Is there another kind of easy to clean litter that I have not heard of?
