I change the the straws every 3- 4 weeks and i rotate my birds from cords to the flyens every 4-5 days. is there any other things you can put instead of hay straws? anyone ever tried alphalpha or placing sand in a wooden floor flypen? any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
The only comment I can make to you my friend is you might overwork your birds if you keep them in there too long so just limit the time that their in there because its also like a big scratch pen, just my two cents!
