My roost bars are 2x4 laid flat and are at the same height as the base of the Windows I have in the coop. This is about 30"+ off the floor of the coop. The roost is sitting at 10" on center off the wall. The poop boards I have are 18" wide with 1x material around the edges to give it a lip; so I guess about 20" wide total. This give me about 10" of poop catching capacity whether the hens are facing the window or inside the coop. seems like more than enough poop board to catch all the droppings. Any idea if I could cut these down a bit to save space in the coop.
I mostly ask because my second roost and poop board (18" wide x 34" long) is really infringing on the Pop door with the current dimensions of my poop boards.
Thanks for the help.
