do I need to cover it (all or partially) with shavings for health/comfort purposes?
Yeah Pine shavings would be good, or sand it makes an easy easy clean up
Mine is built on a concrete pad. I have about 6 inches of pine shaving on it. I change them out twice a year.
I also agree with putting some kind of bedding down on the floor.
Thanks for the advice. I do believe the concrete will be too cold.
Shavings, straw, sand, peat...is one better than another for not promoting mites, etc to move in?
I would use some kind of shavings or the straw.
Straw against concrete will draw moisture and rot. I would put sand or shavings directly on the concrete and then put straw if you want to.
Your right! I should have made my self more clear. Thanks for clearing that up.
Thanks everyone...shavings it is!
I have been wanting to change the flooring material in my boss's chicken coop. just a dirt floor with shavings is too dusty. What if i were to concrete the floor, cover the concrete with rubber horse stall mat then put shavings?
