Questions on coop/run maintenance. So I'm wondering what everyone uses to control smell and the like in both their coop and runs. I can not free range unfortunately we have tons of predators on our open land. And my flock is very well sized for the size run we have. In the summer the yard in the run burns off quickly and doesn't smell up so much. But right now with all the rain it's ugly. i take and remove excess weekly and the coop shavings are emptied at least twice a week if not more depending on the mess they make. In the horses stalls we use lime -was wondering if this would be safe for the chickens? Other thing is I'd like to build a laying box set so that my hens aren't laying where they sleep. What type of creative ideas do you guys use?
