I am just getting started and in getting things ready I have tried to use/reuse things I already had. I built the nesting boxes out of a piece of plywood I had for 10 years, made feeder from a couple of buckets, roosts from some 2x4's. In thinking about bedding I was going to use straw but have lots of pine trees on the property. Is there any reason I can't use the dead needles in the nesting boxes and on the floor of the coop?
