Great idea Yelim! Simple and effective!
It seems my birds always sit in the same exact spot every night, as evident by where the poop lands. It's amazing how the poop landing zone is always so consistant, to the point I could almost get away with putting a can under each bird..
I was thinking when looking at the poop landing pattern of Yelims dropping board, that he could almost get away with two long, narrow, wall paper type trays..lol.. Empty when full..
Many years ago well before I owned my own birds, a fellow I know who kept hens, used to sprinkle lime on his dropping board. He would do this every few days, and then after a month or so would take a shovel, and empty the dropping board. He claimed the lime really kept the smell down, and was great for the keeping compost PH balance. I don't see anybody using lime in the hen house these days, and wondered if that was because of health concerns from breathing the lime dust?
