The more "stuff" in your coop/run, the more poop-y surfaces to clean!! We took the ramp off to pressure wash it, and the next thing we knew, the hens were just fly-hopping right up and right inside. No more poop cleaning on that ramp! It never gets cold enough here to worry about, so until we have chicks again, it's history!! YAYYYY!!! My chicks are 14, 16, and 18 weeks now - It's Sept 1st. Do you think the 2 older ones (Buff Orp and RIR) will start laying soon?
