    We have a garden right next to their coop/run and they love squash, cukes and corn. Their run gets littered with ends of vege's, cobbs and stuff. How does one keep it cleaner? I was thinking of a new cat litter box and only putting their goodies in there from now on.

    You can use a container box for such treats or rake the pen periodically and put the remains on the compost pile.

    We simply rake twice a week and compost the mix of poop and leftover veggie parts....
