    ChickenStudent New Egg

    Aug 30, 2011
    Okay ... so I go out today to get eggs and overnight it seems all the manure grew hair!

    Once I got over the mini freak out I did some serious scooping and it's all gone. But now I have a question ...

    Deep litter ... how in the world does it work exactly? Just throwing new shavings in there doesn't seem to work for me. Or is it just that I'm not covering the old manure enough?

    The chickens (or you) have to stir the litter around.
