We are totally new to the BYC. My husband's family had a few chickens when he was young so he is somewhat familiar with them, but I am green! So, here is my question - What kind of flooring do we need or can we leave it alone? We have an open air coop/run? It is concrete fence on two sides and framed chicken wire on 2 sides (and top) with the nesting boxes and roost house on stilts. We just got 19-7mo old laying hens 3 days ago (3 Rhode Island Reds & 16 light Brahmas) sooner than we anticipated, but was a good deal. The floor is the ground - dirt, sand & plants that were still growing wild. What do you think?
