    Hi everyone. I purchased a new coop. I have 3 year old hens and will be getting ~10 more from my DD.
    I have painted the floor of the coop with Blackjack #57 but I'm unsure of my next step. Straw is readily available (and free) but do I put sand or straw or wood chips. I want to introduce the new and old hens to the new coop at the same time I think. Any advice welcome!! I know it's all been asked and answered before but currently only have a phone for access.
