    What is the easiest way to get chicken poop of the wood boards . I have heard about painting it which sounds like a gread great idea but can't do that right at this time. Does vinegar help ? I would use a putty knife also but what solution is best ?

    I have bare boards under my roosts also. I clean the poop off every morning with a dustpan and brush which is only used for that purpose.

    If there has been an overnight intestinal poop or something not as solid as usual, I just give the board a wipe with a disinfecting wipe.

    Once a week I take the board out and give it a quick light hit with some sandpaper, brush it off and put it back.
