    I'm planing on getting 3 smallish chickens. How often do you have to clean a chicken coop & run? Every day?
    Every week? What??

    Depends on how small the coop area is. I clean my coops 1 to 2 times a week. My coops are 5 x 8 and hold 5 to 10 large fowl.

    The runs I don't clean out that often...

    Thanks! My coop and run together is going to be about 100 square feet for 3 chickens.
