My poop board is about 2.5' deep and 5.5' wide. It is also close to the roosts to maximize the usable space underneath. Recently I saw a "shrub rake" and bought one. It is an excellant poop board scraper. It is about 9" wide and works wonderfully for cleaning the large area. It also has a shorter handle so it is easy to use inside the coop. Essentially, this is a kid sized version of the large green, plastic leaf rakes.
