Let me start by saying I want to do the deep litter (one where it makes compost). The run will get wet (when it rains). My run has very very good ventilation. Will straw or pine shavings or both be a better suit for me? I want to be able to have some good compost next year. If it's all the same, I think straw will go further for my money. Anyone have any suggestions or good input on what I'm trying to accomplish?
