What does everyone else use for the flooring in the coop? We have been using wood shavings but they dont seem to be breaking down enough to use in the garden and we are not going to pick through for the poop. Plus the mice are living and breeding inside our compost area and that is causing more and more snakes to show up. When we lifted it off yesterday there were about 15 mice scattering and babies feeding off the mothers. We dont want this anywhere near our property, Under our shavings we are using a spongy work out pads that connect to each other that are about 1/2 inch to an inch thick to protect the wood floor of the shed. Could we use this as our primary flooring without shavings? If not next step will be some kind of rotating compost bin.
