    I have my quail above ground and on hardware cloth. Most of their dropping do go through the 1/4 wire but there is still a lot that hardens on the hardware cloth.

    Does anybody have a good idea on loosening this hardened poop?

    I currently us a a metal brush and a nylon pot scrubber but they don't work the best. Thought about a pressure washer or a steamer but don't want the Bobs to get wet or spray around any detergents.

    Many thanks to anyone with suggestions or what they do.
