Ok, I've read some of the posts and given it some thought but still...when and how often should I clean out the coop/run. We live in San Diego, close to the coast to weather isn't an issue. The coop and run are all in one enclosed set-up. Eight feet long, three feet wide, and four feet tall. Fully enclosed with wire cloth (I think that's the name), including the bottom for predator protection. I am currently using straw and food grade DE. The girls are pooping in their nest box, too. Is that normal? My husband build it two weeks ago when we got our hens. Now, to make matters difficult...he forgot to build a door in the run! The lid of the coop opens but only from the top! I think you can see my dilemma. So my only option is to move the whole thing after scraping it out. But, what 'da ya know...no wheels!! We will of course be making improvements in the future but for now any suggestions? I'm open to all ideas.
