Odor Free Chicken House

Practice the deep litter method. Smell Free – Saves Work – Healthier Chickens – Great Compost Base
Once a week shake out straw, pine needles, leaves (1″ base to start) in house. Keep adding it.
Pick out any soggy areas around water source if needed, turn over with pitchfork – add more dry matter.
Every 3-4 months turn it all over/fluff it all up – add more dry matter. Every 6 months clean all out – add to compost pile or garden beds
Start over with 1″ dry base.
