So what’s the easiest way to keep Your Chicken coop clean? Build a Poop deck of course!
We’ve gone big! Our coop is now 724 square feet and with that comes… poop.
Lots’ of it!
What did we do to make this less than enjoyable chore more streamlined? We built a poop deck! Yes, you heard me LOL! This nifty little poop deck keeps our coop floor relatively clean (not all chickens got the memo to use the new facilities) and my back happy since I no longer have to stoop over to clean the floors.
Just scoop and toss! Check out my video on how we use it and why I love it:
If you decide to build one for your coop… please do NOT use play sand. No, no, no. Play sand contains quartz that is dusty and can create respiratory issues AND can collect in their crop and kill them. Use construction, bank run or river sand for your chickens well being.
We still have more tweaks on the new coop (can you say outrageous lumber prices) so the front closure on it will have to wait until prices come down, but for now at least we have an easier way to finish this job!
