Are your 2 roosts equally spaced over the poop board? Example: 1st roost 8 inches from wall, next roost 8" from 1st roost, which is 8" from the edge of the board. Do you have a lot of spillage over the side?

My poop boards are only about 12" below my roosts. I use dried leaves to catch the droppings and it works amazing. I find the leaves keep the odor down and break down better for compost than pine shavings. The sand method for me would be way too much work to sift the poop out everyday as I have a large number of chickens.
