Hi! This is our first year with chickens. Our coop is approximately 5' wide by 15' long by 10' high. I'm curious with about 12 chickens, how often is it recommended that it is cleaned. The girls free range during the day so they aren't in it all the time, just mainly at night or when they are laying eggs. The floor is dirt and we keep a good layer of straw down, but the chicken poop seems to accumulate quickly, say every couple of weeks. I think the straw should be removed when it starts looking like a land mine of chicken poop, but hubby and I had a deal, I scoop the cat litter boxes and he cleans the coop out so I don't want to tell him when to clean it and I don't think he would like it if I did. His solution is to put down more straw another time or two until he is ready to clean it out. So I thought I would see how often others completely remove whatever it is that is put down for a flock and coop of approximately the same size. I just want to keep the girls healthy!
