I have looked on here about using cat litter in the coops, but I am not finding the answer I'm wanting. I am currently using pine shavings, but with 14 hens it is not working very well. It's getting covered in poo too fast and I am not able to effectively scoop it out to maintain it. I have read on here about deep litter methods but I am unsure as to do this. I am going to clean it out today and my hubby will pick up the litter but I am guessing I can't use just ANY KIND OF LITTER. What should I buy/not buy? Do you mix in shavings too? I find these get so bogged down with poo that it's just a mess. Thanks for your input!
