Most of mine usually fall on the poop deck so those are easily removed. But I have 34 chicken 30 of which are molting. I just leave the ones that make it to the floor until I figure their about done or I switch from pine bedding to straw. I do however sweep up the ones in the run every other day or so. That way my neighbors dont think I'm slaughtering birds or something should they wander over.

I have 2 dozen going naked. I just use my manure rake and sift them all out. They're great for the compost pile. On a good windy day, I can open the doors and windows and let them blow through and out. Neighbors LOVE that! I swear it looks like a sleep-over pillow fight gone bad for the past couple of weeks.
