He have some coops whitewashed and when we change the shavings we sprinkle it down first as in the old days i find it also helps to keep the shavings fresher longer.

I've just been reading through this thread and wonder if any of you sprinkle lime in your runs. I have covered runs and do to circumstances my birds are spending more time in them than what I'd like. The soil is kept very dry and I try to turn it every so often but it's getting very stinky. I've also been battling mites again...sigh. It seems like a never ending problem for me. Would garden (or agricultural) lime be ok to spread in the run? Would it help combat mites? Or do I need to use hydrated lime against pests? And if it does need to be hydrated would that still be safe to use on the soil? I find differing info on this topic everywhere. Help!
