    Hi! I have access to a lot of used carpet and thought about cutting pieces of it to fit the bottom of my chicken coop, then just rolling it up and disposing of it every week. Seems like an easy and cheap way to keep the place clean. Think I'll have any problems?

    Stick with sand. Too many gerbies can start up when carpet gets wet from the poo and spilled water
