I have a question about those of you who use sand for under your roost on your poop boards. I am currently using pine flakes which seems to keep the poop elevated and allows for it to dry out. Unless for some reason it's bad in the coop or gets stinky I have been scraping thru and picking out the poop once a week. In doing so I take out roughly 2 -5 gallon pails of poop but a majority of the 2 pails is pine flakes. Question to the sand users. Are you guys able to use like a pooper scooper and just remove the poop? Kinda little a litter box for a cat. Do you change all the sand? What do you do? Also how thick do you put the sand? Does the poop dry out or does it stay kinda wet being on the sand ? I am not apposed to changing over to sand under poop boards but wouldn't mind some input on what your take is. @aart what say you?
