chicken coop size per bird

Deep litter chicken?

I bought a group of hens and a small barn and am interested in the bottom farming method, but am not sure it will work for me. The Coop is on the small size for the number of chickens I have (not my choice – they got together) and the floor is made of wood. The book says to do with a 4 "layer of chips and more each time above looks wet cleaning once per year. I really need a method that will not smell the does (do not we all?) and keeps everything healthy for the birds. Should I try this or just suck it up and just clean the litter every week? I'm not working Fear – I've done it before – and with my schedule I would much prefer to do a terrible chore slightly worse than 52 choir. I wondered if it is on The chicken is a part of the work, if anyone has any clues, and if I should pay something to tell me that it does not work (when you 'x' to see to do 'y' to repair it). Thank you!

NO you do not! The chips are disgusting by the time you have to clean it. Only be cleaned regularly (once or twice a week), then you will not worry about all the chips. So … when we sit for a long time the chips in the heat (I'm assuming they will have a heat lamp in winter), then it will probably grow flies / maggots. And you do not want your chicken to have to make in this . live Only clean the cage when its needed, and it will also save on chips .. and you are happy, clean chicken
