Hi - I live in CA and am knee deep ( not really) in mud. My coops are a mess. I have heard that rice hulls makes a good bedding materail. Does anyone use it - what are the plus and minus's??

Thank you.

I use rice hulls all the time inside and I think they are the best. Don't know about outside but I think they would work

I used them last summer. I found they worked well in my pens that stayed dry. If they get wet, they pack easily. The chickens love pecking around in the hulls looking for bits of rice.

I use them inside in my brooder and I am going to use them on the poop boards when the bag of shavings is gone. I don't think they would work well in a wet area.
