I have 6 hens (cant have more due to ordinance) and my 15x4' run floor is dirt. So far ive been raking it out every other week and then yesterday I locked the girls in the coop and gave the ground a good hosing. Is that going to be good enough? I dont really want pine shavings on the ground out there. They do drag some out from the coop as they go in and out...im ok with that because its minimal. Is it ok to just leave it dirt? I dont have to have sand or pine right? It doesnt seem terribly dirty or poopy. Mostly leftover tidbits such as melon rinds or whatnot.
