Cleaning our chicken coop is relatively easy. Once, your remove all the chunks you give the coop a genus dose of vinegar. But, the chickens are messing in the chicken yard. The manure can not be picked up like horse manure especially after a Florida monsoon season. when I go into the yard I sink up to my knees. I had to buy high boots. This muck must be getting my chickens sick but, how to clean it. This definitely shows the advantage of open range method. Unfortunately, we have predators and no real range to speak of. so, how do I clean the yard?
