I am in Florida and have about a 100 sq ft run on a dirt floor. My chickens have been out there for a couple weeks and the accumulation of chicken poo is really getting nasty. Like little land mines trying to dodge. So, it's time to do something for the floor. I have read a gazillion threads about sand and another gazillion about deep litter. Figured I would give sand a try but amazingly I can't find anything other than play sand and all purpose. I know play sand is not good because it is manufactured and very fine. Anyone using all purpose? Really don't know much about that. So now I am also rethinking DLM. I know I am overthinking everything but it just seems so complicated to me. Seems like I would still be dodging chicken poo as there would now be layers mixed in to the mulch (I would use pine mulch). Honestly my chickens are having some much fun digging around in the dirt that I hate to put anything down but trying to clean up the poo off a dirt floor is not fun! Would love to hear from those of you that have used either method to help me figure this out. My hubby is getting sick of me pouring through the archives for hours on end and wants me to make a decision already Thanks!
