We have a coop that is about 20ft long by about 10 feet deep. Inside is all perches and nest boxes, and then the chickens have a covered run and are free range all day. Inside of our coop, we have a plywood floor, and about an inch of sand. Every morning I go out and use a scoop (homemade - heavy duty dust pan with holes drilled in it) to scoop all the poop before the chickens get up to make a mess of it. There has got to be an easier way to do this? Surely? I have ~100 chickens that sleep in the coop at night, so there are a lot of droppings. Am I missing an easier method? Is the DLM the way to go? Should I not be using sand?
