Nice coop and run
I would like to see Amiga's setup. Smarrrrrt...verrry Smart!What kind of waterer are you using? also I suggest using pine shaving, much more absorbent and if you can don't put waterer inside the coop. Amiga showed a pic of her set up and I am thinking it was a plastic bin that had one end cut down, actually a plastic dog crate would work the same way the bottom half, I believe she used pelleted horse bedding and put the water can't remember what kind of container she use though but if you can keep the waterer inside something like this where they have to walk inside of something to drink that would keep the water off the main bedding. I use heated bucket and keep all of them outside the chickens ducks and geese use them. I'm not set up at all to have water inside my coops.
Explain the apple cider vinegar to me, please. I find that interesting.Pea gravel that you could stand and walk on barefoot, a foot to fot and a half deep. use milk jugs with holes just big enough for heads to fit in and reach bottom. use a tablespoon of apple cider vinager per gallon of water, as it seems to help all around. on top of gravel i have railroad ties logs and stumps, and i have make shift grates raised, that allow me to not have to clean hardly at all unless gets too dry and piles up. my chickens love so much that i have to shoo them out of duck pen when left open, and tjats were they prefer to lay their eggs now.
