I want to thank the folks who posted the thread a few weeks back about their poop-slides and poop-hammocks. I moved my 7 week old pullets out to their coop 8 nights ago and want to report that the poop-slide I created (with inspiration from this forum) is working very well. The first few nights more than half of the girls roosted up on the shelf I built over the nesting boxes, but because I had anticipated that, I had covered it with sheets of corrugated plastic, which is very easy to clean. Since then, they have been roosting on the roosts (braving higher roosts each night) with the poop-slide under them and all the poop has slid down into the Rubbermaid lid at the bottom of the slide. Yesterday I did my first coop cleaning and it took about 45 seconds with the shop vac to suck up what was in the lid and on the shelf, which took care of probably 90% of all the poop deposited in the coop in the past week. (Here in Colorado the air temp is dry enough that the poop vacumes up easily and cleanly and I can just empty the shop vac into the compost bin). My poop slide is made of two 1"X1" pieces of wood with pieces of corrugated plastic (left over from a different project) attached to them. It hangs with hook & eyes about 6 or 7 inches under the roosts with the bottom resting on the edge of a lid to a big Rubbermaid tub that I no longer have (found the lid while I was clearing the space for the coop and scooped it back out of the trash can before trash day). While this week I simply vacumed, it will be very easy to remove both the poop slide and the lid to hose them off if and when the need arises.
