    What types of litter do people use for the floor of runs or chicken coops that isn't super dusty?

    I use straw... my coop is 8'x10' and I use about a bale of straw each month to cover the floor and fill the nest boxes.

    Pine shavings for the coop, straw in the nesting boxes (well, they aren't laying yet so this may or may not be successful!) and the run is dirt mixed with whatever they track out of the coop and what they pull through the chicken wire!
