Then I start the pool draining, we installed a valve system so that's easy. While it drains I grab the poo layer off the shavings in the run using a rake. Then I stir it up and add fresh, and sprinkle with DE and "sweat PDZ".
Flush out the pool, clear the drain, and refill it. While it refills I grab the waterers and set them up for a refill, and dump the pan from the watering station in the coop.
Refill and reset the drinkers, take everything to the compost pile. Usually I fill the 5 gallon bucket twice. I clean up once a day inside, 2-3 times a week in the run.
Mean while, it takes me a week to fill the 5 gallon bucket on the chicken side. LOL
Lastly I refill all the feed, and bring their treats out, while saying "go home"... and they march home like good little ducks.
After a rain I leave the bedding alone but spray it with "Nature's Cure" and that handles any ammonia smells without having to pull all the bedding out. About $3 worth of product eliminates the use of $10 worth of bedding. Great for when it's to rain several days in a row.
The goal of our system is to only remove the poo. We use pine shavings because it lasts longer than anything else without molding as quickly, if you keep it dry and stirred up. Keeps the compost from building up too fast with it.
