After hearing so many good things about using poop boards under roosts, I went ahead and put one in yesterday. Up until now, I have been using pine shavings a couple of inches deep and just stirred everything around, then cleaned it about once a month. I've only had this coop up and running since May, but it has always stayed pretty clean. Well, I went out to clean off the poop board, man was there ALOT of poo, and there were fruit flies everywhere!!! I've never had this in my coop. I cleaned off the poop board, went to go dump the poop in my composter and when I came back, all the flies had migrated to the window. Anyone have any ideas why there would be so many fruit flies in my coop all of the sudden? I thought maybe it was because the poop wasn't covered by the shavings, but even when the poo was in the shavings, it wasn't always covered up and buried. Any advice is greatly appreciated. The last thing I want is bugs in my coop!!
