    I have a barn full of hay that is about 2 years old. It is in a very well ventilated barn that is dry.

    As I am getting the chicken run ready for winter, I am wondering if I can use the old hay on the floor of the run?

    It has a metal roof & I am planning on putting construction plastic on the sides to keep the wind & snow out. Currently the ground is basically dirt.

    Thoughts?

    I wouldn't hesitate to use it at all.
