We changed it about twice a week. If it rains, we clean it as soon as possible so it doesn't smell. We put it the front half of the pen, then they mess it up and spread it around, they love scratching and pecking it looking for bugs and stuff. They also have a nice grassy area and a sand patch for their dust baths :)
