    yes, inside the coop & outside in the run ~ and the bottom of a nest box too

    I also spread a layer between the subfloor using an additional layer of plastic sheeting on it under the plywood.

    Quote:Call feed stores that supply horses, dairy, chickens, etc. I've found 2 local sources that offer 50 lb bags for under $30. I also found a nearby "drop site" by searching CraigsList. It was more expensive but in 2 lb bags. You might also check local pet stores.
