    If you look into the "deep litter" method - that's an option. I don't use it in a literal sense, but i pile a good foot or so of dried grass clippings under the roosts and simply rake it over every morning (10 seconds job). I only change the whole litter if it begins to smell or every 6 months or so. I wish i had done it earlier - makes things so easy.
