We are just about to get our very first laying chickens tomorrow. 6 of them. We have the coop, the run , the feed, feeders etc. but my question is about the material inside the coop. I have read that some use hay, some use pine shaving and I have also heard of shredded paper. Is the shredded paper a safe way to go? I want to be safe but the idea of recycling the paper from my home sounds good. and more economical. Any advice is appreciated.
