I am a super tidy person, and my hubby finally convinced me to raise chickens. I probably would be doing most of the work, so my question is, how dirty are they really? Will it be really hard to keep their coop clean and keep the birds healthy? I want to do this right and have a tidy as can be reasonably managed coop, and healthy birds. Hubby told me chickens are disgusting and dirty but they have alot of good points like meat and eggs and they aren't too hard to care for. His dad who used to have a small farm, said the same thing. They laugh when I say I want to keep the coop tidy. They said its going to be crusty and gross and just to not look too hard when I go in there. I am realistic, I know the birds will poo on everything. How do you keep your coop clean, how often to you muck it out, do you scrap the poo off stuff on a regular basis? What is the best method for having a tidy healthy coop?
