Deep litter Method:
I don't know about you, but I like to make the most efficient use of my time.

Here's how it works:
That's all there is to it. I have been using this method now for a couple of years and have never had any ammonia smells. Also, the diatomaceous earth helps to reduce any pest problems. Give this a try, it will save you a lot of time.
