Here's my set up: Open Air (mostly) raised coop. I have 2 sides completly open(wired of course) 1 side half open and 3rd just small amout at top open for more ventilation. I live in texas and it get really hot here in summer and not to cold in winter so I went with lots of air movement. I have a plywood floor covered in peel and stick flooring and need to decided what to use as bedding in coop. Sand (what kind, play sand?) Shavings? What about whenit rains, don't they stink when wet? I get chicks on wend. so I need to decide fast Thanks everybody!
