Most people make their own or buy a small plastic tray, I built mine as one big cat litter box running the length of the roost just clean with a litter scoop.

This is the design I came up with for my poop board, it's filled with Sweet PDZ. It hasn't been tested yet,




but the chicks will be in their new coop tomorrow...

I have been using boot trays, just long enough to fit under my roost. Cover with some newspaper in the evening, fold them up in the morning and put in the trash or compose box, the easiest plan I have come up with so far.

We use a poopboard filled with Sweer PDZ under our roost, very happy with the set up. I use a wire mesh paper tray to sift out the poop. Quick clean up and no flies or odor.

What size piping did you use? I have acquired some 1.75" and was going to try to make a feeder out of it, but yours looks much larger.

I really like the idea of poop boards with sweet pdz. do ya'll ever have a problem with the birds roosting in the pdz? will they automatically jump up to the poop board and then on to the roost bar?

Ours walk in the PDZ. Sometimes dust bathe in it but always bounce up to the roosts to sleep.
