    So last week I asked how people cleaned the chicken stuff out of the sand in their runs. Well, I got some scrap together and made this thing like a dust pan with hardware cloth in it to sift the sand out O the poop. Easy and cheap the bottom is a piece of 3/8 plywood with the middle cut out with a jig saw.

    I couldn't get the pic of my pooper scooper into the post. How do you get pics into a posty anyway? msf

    Please show a photo! This is exactly what I have been trying to create, but my designs haven't worked out the way I wanted. I'm now thinking of buying a manure shovel and cutting out the center and tacking hardware cloth in it to make a sieve.
