We are in process of building a coop/run. This will be our first time having chickens at our home. I did grow up with chickens. What shoyld we use for the flooring in the run and coop? What is the easiest to clean, less smell and good for compost? Pine shavings, sand, hay, straw?? Also what is the cheapest?? Our chicks arrive end of april. We plan on using a refrigerator box as the brooder we will keep it in the raised coop. I live in socal it's already very hot here. We will have a heat lamp for brooder at night but I don't think we will need one during the day. Realy need advice on what to use as flooring?? Having a hard tim finding straw in our area we have plenty of hay here and sand and also we can purchase pine shavings... Thanks!!
