Apologies for the dumb question but I'm new at all of this! Our winter coop is mostly insulated and has a plywood floor - will the deep litter method work for the winter? I also don't use DE, should I be getting some? The winters here in north-eastern canada are ROUGH, should I still be concerned about mites or other parasistes? Don't think I've seen any on my girls... They are in great condition, beautiful feathers, I pick them up every day and don't notice anything awry... Thank you!
