I'm new and I haven't even built a coop yet. Been trying to read up before I start. I'm uncertain about pests. I read that to keep mites, lice, fleas, mice, and rats at bay, you need to keep the coop clean. And I read that deep litter requires cleanout only 2-4 times a year. Which way do I go? Anybody got pest troubles from deep litter??? I am a gardener, so I'm very interested in the composting. I feel deep litter would be best, but I do NOT want to end up with mites, lice, fleas, mice, and rats!
