Welcome. I have 10 red Sex Link Hens since October yarded in a barn with a 10 by 30 foot outside run. We love our girls, but geez are they mesy! I want to take the wooden ramp out This is the hardest to clean, even daily. They are not near a water source. It is brought to them daily for drinking. Pressure washing it is not an option in winter. Also on top of their nesting boxes they like to dirty. I have to scrape it every day, at times it hardens and is difficult to remove. This does prevent them from messing inside their nesting boxes. ANy input would be great. Thanks.
