I am loving raising chickens but think I worry about their health as much as I worry about my children's. To control worms I see that you should "limit their time on natural soil", does that mean I should layer the dirt throughout the coop with pine wood chips? And also does any one have advice on bully hens. I have 11 Ameraucanas and 4 other hens (breed I have forgotten) and the 4 will not allow the 11 on the roosting poles. So they roost on the nesting boxes and it is making a horrible mess. The one day I put wire on top of the nesting boxes, there was chaos! And the 4 hens pecked any that tried to get on the roosting poles. My only thought is to add another pole on the opposite side??? Thanks for any advice.
