So I watched this youtube video (I'll paste the link below) where a woman had multiple types of bedding in her coop. I believe she had everything from leaves, dirt, sticks, hay, etc. She said her bedding was 3 years old and had NO smell. She said she would come out and turn it every once in a while to get the poop on the surface to the bottom so that it could decompose. I guess my question is does anyone else have experience with this? My 12 chickens are still in a grower run and coop right now. I am going to move them over to a 12'x12' coop and let them free range in a couple months. I am mostly wondering if I could use say, a couple bags of fine pine shavings that I have on hand, some compost, mulch, leaves (we have tons of oak trees around the house), and dirt...mix it all together with a pitchfork, and do the deep bedding method. Will the leaves need to be mulched? So many questions! I may just experiment with it and update this thread every so often. Here is the video. You may have to copy and paste it into your browser. Thanks!
