My boss is going to give me a homemade chicken tractor that will act as the girls' coop as well. I have not seen it yet but imagine I will have to make a few changes to make it more comfortable as a permanent spot. My concern though is the bedding and the shavings in the outdoor, yet covered, "hang out" areas... I live on Guam and it is very humid. We don't have four seasons but rather a dry season (very hot) and a wet season (lots of rain). Would the deep litter method work for this type of an environment? They will have a lot of air flow and I will probably attach some tarp here and there so they can be outside of the coop area even if it is raining. Would I just want to go out there and rake the shavings around everyday to make sure nothing starts to get soaked? Or just apply a new layer on top to get it dry for the girls again? Something else? If deep litter doesn't seem like the best choice, what should I consider doing instead? I only have 3 chickens and the tractor is 8' x 4' so I don't imagine the maintenance will be too major as they won't be producing too much waste (I hope) on a daily basis. Any and all suggestions please I am very much a "new egg" at this.
