    so I followed some advice I saw on here about putting linoleum on the droppings board under the roosts, and I cleaned the coop for the first time after the girls had been out for five days. Linoleum ROCKS!!! So easy to clean! Highly recommended [​IMG]
    the hubby thinks I'm incredibly strange for being this excited about cleaning up poo and he's probably right:lau

    That is great!!

    We are building our coop now and actually just finishing putting in the linoleum floor!

    All my friends think I am crazy!! Hee hee

    But they don't have to clean it!

    Good Job!

    AWESOME idea!! We just tore out our old floor and now I have a use for it!
    So do you have a pic or can you explain how you did it? Did you attach it to something removeable to take it out from under the roosts and clean it? or did you just put it under them and attach it permanently?

    Thats great, i bet its warmer in winter too.
    I use flattened feed bags under the hay and just fold it all up and into the vegie patch each week.
    Ill have to try lino as well.
