Poop board suggestions

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

We are almost done with the main coop build. It's a 6X6 coop with a 6X12 run. I plan on having 2 roosts, 6ft long each located on the front and back walls. I want to put in poop boards but I don't want to make them too heavy to remove as I won't be able to enter the coop to get them (they would need to come out of the access door which is 2.5X2.5. I plan on covering them with vinyl tile to make them easier to clean. Would particle board be too thin?

Not if you have enough support below them....

perhaps instead of making them removable, you can just set them in place then scrape the poo off if you are able to get into the coop. That is what I do.

I use a drywall taping knife (aka a wide flat trowel with a handle) and scrape the poo down the boards into a pail then carry it out.

Do they need to be across from each other?   It seems if you had them so they met in one corner, there would be space to enter the coop to clean.
