Hi all! I'm new to chickens and this forum as our family just recently bought 25 chicks from Murray McMurry hatchery. They are already 6 weeks old and we r amazed at the speed in which the lil Devils grow! Gonna put em out to our coop which is just an old pigstall from our very old barn which I converted over to work as a coop with an attached 12 x 12 run. While I was putting the finishing touches on today I realized it's kinda dark in the old barn so I was wondering how much that would effect egg production. The other question I had is I planned on using hay as bedding using the deep litter method but will that creat to much dust? Thanks in advance and I'm sorry for the rookie questions!
