    If you have a sand floor, do you put anything on top of that?

    Straw or pine shavings for the winter?

    How often do you clean it, rake it?

    Thanks![​IMG]

    I would probably use pine shavings. I use them in my coop. [​IMG]

    I would use sand to avoid having to put anything else in there. I'd rake it once a week and spot-rake as necessary.

    Thanks! I wasn't sure if I should add something with winter coming.

    I do like the sand though so far!
