SO we are newly chicken owners. Getting coop ready for our 3 ( well one Roo too on his way to new home) Lav Orps. We have a 5' x 5' coop attached a 3' x 8' run that is just fenced in. I have ready everything about sand.. my plan is to use chickens to benefit my garden. Their coop will be right on the southern end of my 15 x 30' wood chip garden. We are on eastern shore and get a ton of rain and our coop is in a area that is on the edge of a area that gets really wet. I want to sue the manure for compost. but im just not sure which flooring material to use. any suggestions? Flys are always a issue and we have a lot of heat in summer.
