Hi all. Can anyone give me advice on if leaves are OK to use for bedding on the ground in an OUTDOOR uncovered run? I have boatloads of leaves (mostly oak & walnut) in my yard that would be lovely to place in the run. However, I am worried about mold. Does anyone have experience with using leaves? Instead of conjectures, I'd really love to hear from people who have tried it....I'm sure some of you have. For a little background: Right now the outdoor run is just dirt, I've had chickens for a year and a half and occasionally throw weeds in the run but haven't done anything else. I live in Wisconsin so it is a bit rainy in the fall. Here's a photo of my coop: Check out my signatures for lots more coop & hen photos.
