I have a 4’x 5’ coop, with a side door at waist height. I open the door and remove the droppings every 3 days using a small kitty scoop. The pine shavings are 2-3 inches deep and there are three roosting poles. I have been sick for two weeks and could not do the cleaning. The droppings and the pine shavings are now hard as a rock. The nesting boxes fortunately were not affected. I am wondering if there is any other cleaning methods such as liter linings, pans, and other techniques (beside the deep liter method) that I can use as part of the regular cleaning. I am fanatic about keeping the coop clean and want to continue to maintain it droppings –free as much as possible. Thank you!
