I live in suburbia with a backyard that seems a lot smaller now that I have a roaming chicken tractor. I think I expected the poop to break down quicker or easier. Unfortunately, after the chickens being moved about the yard for a month or two, the place is full of poop.
We need to do something about it or we have to abandon our chicken experiment.
I was thinking it would be awesome if a lawn sweeper (much like a restaurant carpet sweeper) could pick the poop up. Does anyone have any suggestions? Has anyone successfully used a lawn sweeper?
Since the birds are in a tractor, they tend to walk on the poop, so I'm not really dealing with individual droppings. Otherwise, a dog poop scoop seemed like it might work.
