In the Brooder

Can I put sand or dirt over bedding in the coop before I put on new straw? Some people have mentioned using wood ash but I don't have any.
Always great advice. I have had some sitting in the ash bucket outside and it's still hot after a couple of days. Even if you aren't going to use it for your chickens, you want it cool if you are putting it in the edge of the woods or anywhere it could start a fire.If you spread ashes in your coop, be VERY, VERY, VERY sure they're stone cold!!!!
