How in the world do you get nest boxes totally clean?! I know many of you have the fold out doors on external nest boxes & many of you use portable nest boxes like cat litter pans, rubbermaid containers, etc. Those seem to solve the problem of cleaning out nest boxes. But, I have wooden external nest boxes with the roof of it being the lid to open it. I know straw or something may be easier since it kinda all stays together at least somewhat, but what about pine shavings? When I clean out the nest boxes, I can never totally get every last little bit out! I even use a wide putty knife pushing the shavings to one side & kinda sliding it up the nest box wall & getting it out or flicking it into the coop bedding, but there's always some stray shavings, broken down shavings, & dust from shavings that just will NOT all come out! I just get it out the best I can & put in new shavings. My hubby is building a new coop & now I wish I had thought to tell him to either put the hinged doors on the outside of the nest box or either hinged the bottom where it would fold down to empty them & brush them off. He's worked so hard on the coop, I just can't get him to make changes now. So, what can I do? I know vinyl flooring in them would be an option & maybe get it up with a little whisk broom instead of it staying in all the little nooks & crannies of the texture of the wood. Or, what about maybe lining the bottom with a piece of cardboard? But, I know some of the shavings will still go up under the cardboard.
