DLM – 2

Here is a continuation of my thoughts with pictures of our hoop coop floors.  I posted this originally in Backyard Chickens.

Here are pics of some of our DLM. 2nd pic – black pile is well rotted hay from the year before moved from a different area into this run. I did pull it apart & sort of spread it around – to prevent it from sticking together/matting up/staying clumped up. Worked well, wasn’t long, it just disappeared into the DLM mix.

Here’s some pics you can see pretty much “depleted” litter in a different coop. Need to add more. 3rd pic shows more material added the next day (the date is typed wrong on the pic). You can also see a partial bag of large flake pine shavings. That was for chicks being brooded, they are now in loose in the coop run, so it’s being added a little at a time to this as well. They like to sit on the bag while looking around.
