    Ok so my coop is being delivered today, and I'll spend the next few weeks prepping a cozy coop for them.
    The coop i bought doesn't have a floor. Kill grass? Pour sand/gravel? Help!

    I would first let the chicks kill grass, then add bedding.

    Ok got it. How should I clean the coop best in the meantime?

    How big is it? Can you walk in it?

    You can just rake it out.
