So, I found that scraping the poop board in the morning could be a pain sometimes if the poop got kinda, well, sticky. I thought about what I could use to make it easier. Tried newspapers - the girls just scratched that up. Wood chips gave the girls the wrong idea since that's what I use in their nesting boxes. It had to be something easy to use - like scoopable cat litter. But I wanted it compostable. Finally found something I really really like. It's an all critter litter that's pelletized plant fibers. My girls don't like pellet foods; they prefer crumbles, so I don't need to worry about them eating it. But even if they did, it wouldn't hurt them. It actually smells nice when I walk in - not just neutral but almost like new-mown hay. I've used it for a couple weeks now and wanted to report that it's a great product. I got a cat-litter scoop that had wide enough slots that the pellets fall through but the poop stays on the scoop. And the couple of times the girls had a "fart-egg" on the roost, it absorbed enough of the liquid that it wasn't a temptation for them. All in all, the best way of keeping the poopboard easy to clean that I've found and I just wanted to report on it.
