    Now that the temps are dropping and the percipitation is kicking into gear, I've noticed that the birds are enjoying their humble abode much more. The poop is piling up!! I used to clean once a mo. and it was fine and now it's once a week!! I use shavings and it's never wet in there...just gets a little smelly.

    Is there any tips on keeping the coop fresh and peachy without cleaning it out every day!! [​IMG]

    Stall Dry...I love it. It really keeps everything dry and almost eliminates any oder. I toss in a couple of cupfuls every day or so.
