building my hen house :) I'm excited !

Are you intending to add a "poop board"?  I learned about it after Hubby built my Run/Coop so we had to improvise, there's threads on this site about it.  I do recommend it, saves a lot of time with cleaning....I just scoop their poop daily, sprinkle PDZ & DE, I'm done.  Living in Hawaii I'm able to get away with this "design" in Run/Coop, the dog house is their nest box.  They come & go during the day, roost at night above the dog house, the poop board under it works out great.  Hubby made the board removable (for cleaning) but I'm lazy so I put a liner in it.  Dust pan with scraper for pick up & weekly I remove the liner to scrub out.  This pix is of it when we first completed the Run/Coop.
