I am reading all the posts on dirt floors vs sand and am begining to go crosseyed! Our coop is almost complete and is 8X11 ft with a metal roof, just like the Wichita Cabin, We have it raised on pavers and will have an enclosed house that I plan to use the deep litter method in. My question is should I keep the run dirt and just sprinkle on DE and lime sometimes? I will use pine shavings and DE on the enclosed house. We live in the mountains of NC if that helps. I really like the idea of the DE to kill mites etc. Thanks for the help!
