I'm new at this, and no pro, so maybe this idea isn't as new & inventive as I thought, but here goes anyway I have horses at the farm with the chickies, and save my feed sacks from the horses as it always seems like such a waste to toss them. Brilliant me came up with the idea of lying the sacks flat out in rows under the roosts and each morning, just roll up the sacks (and poo in the process) and remove. Ta-Da! - bedding is conserved and the mess is literally cleaned up daily in seconds. Anyone who has horses (or other livestock that get feed) knows you ALWAYS have an endless supply of feed sacks. I love it!
