can I use straw in the run?

Recommended Posts

I used sawdust in the run, sprinkled quite generously over the mud, then inside the eglu and in the nestbox with the shredded paper. At first the hens freaked out and refused to come out of the eglu in case they had to stand on the sawdust, but within a couple of hours they were happily munching it. Not quite what I had in mind, but didn't seem to do them any harm...

Also handy are large sticks and logs - you can put them in there to give them something to stand on to keep their feet out of the mud.
