What substrate/bedding to do you use?

Recommended Posts

At the moment I just use straw in my cheap plastic coop but I'm hoping to get a Cube soon and was wondering what other chicken keepers use. I'll continue to use straw for the nest box, but was wondering if i should consider something else for underneath the perches.


So what do you use in your coop?

Under the perches I just use the weekly local newspaper folded to size. Makes it easy to clean, just fold up and slide into the compost bin. Also in the nest box I use hand shredded newspaper.


Cheapest method and I can't see what the advantage is of buying anything else for under the perches.
