HI- we are pretty new to the chicken raising and I have questions on how often I should be cleaning the coop and dirt around it- I had intended on letting the chickens run loose most of the time- but after our Lab got a hold of one- we decided that was not a good idea. Now we keep them in the coop most of the time. I try to let them out to run in the grass 2-4 hours each day while my dog is indoors. I also wonder about the appearance of the poop- I have found some diarrhea poop in the coop and was concerned about that. I want to make sure they are healthy- what do you do to make sure they are? I have 5 chickens and we have had 1-2 eggs each day now for a couple of weeks. Thanks for your help!
