After doing some reading, I decided to try the pelleted (horse) bedding in my coops. I first used it in the brooders, and the reduction in smell and dust was amazing. The spoiled girls out in the coops however have gotten a bit.... finicky! First night I changed the bedding, I went to shut up the coop and found one girl roosting outside in a tree; she refused to go inside! The next morning, they were all up on the perches and nest boxes, refusing to touch foot to the floor even to eat or drink! Well, I find if you wet it slightly it turns to sawdust, and is less annoying to them (actually makes a nice soft surface.) But what do you do when they eat it???? Is anyone else using this?
