I used to use sand on the poop trays, but was getting tired of packing that heavy stuff ! It would also get damp & keep the wood soft...Never has frozen in these coops. I now use shavings right off the floor, usually from in front of their door so it is kinda muddy, on the poop trays. You must have colder temps than we do here !Your coop sounds a lot like mine. But I use PDZ on the poop board. But even with the PDC everything was frozen solid and I couldn’t even scrape it off the board. This summer I’m going to put down some linoleum or something to make it easier. Do you think I should switch to shavings on the board rather than PDC? The PTZ dries out everything so well and there’s no smell. Are use pine shavings in the rest of the coop.
I cuss bad when I hurt myself...like hitting a finger with the hammer...or cutting myself on wire...or at bullies and those who harm children & animals.No language can ever offend me. I was in the Navy and married a sailor. However I know there are kids on this site that might pass through.
Mom has become offended by my language when I get mad. I don't swear usually unless angry.
One of the newest to move here they are decent folks but he bought on dozen was a tad shocked at the price 3.50 not bad more then the store just then .. fixed one of our mowers kinda but became very comfortable walking through the front drive gate these are actually on the front of the yard and the other at the back so put a lock on the gate bought a trail cam .. the lock seem t6o have gotten the message getting 9 to 12 now
I find that if I really hurt myself I cuss less than I do when I do something stupid like a Papercut. I watch my language at work but otherwise I pretty much cuss like a sailor sometimes. A bad habit I need to change.I cuss bad when I hurt myself...like hitting a finger with the hammer...or cutting myself on wire...or at bullies and those who harm children & animals.
That really ticks me off.
