    OOP's wrong place i'll repost.
    Hello BYCers what is best for my 5 week old baby chicks their outside in a 5X6 coop with a 4x8 run enclosed run with wirer all aroud it top and botton and it's on the ground but.. the run is getting :rolleyes:pooped up and I need to put something down on the ground.In two to three weeks I will let them in a enclosed fenced area which is much bigger 25x 50 which is thiers, but I think thier still to small to be with my 5- 18 week olds they are on the otherside with there 30x50 fenced area and a old rabbit hutch I fixed for them, but somethimes they fly over or slip in the baby chicks area that's why their in a run for know until they kinda get to know one another then the babies will go in thier big run for a few weeks then the will be left in the whole fenced in run together and then in the big coop together 10x12 which has no chickens in it yet.

    I have Staw or Shavings and I also have FG DE what should use.
    Thanks Jody
