    It's a hammock that's designed to catch the chicken droppings. Here's a picture of the hammock in my one coop. I love it. It's easy to remove and I just dump the waste:

    As I understand it, a poop hammock is exactly that. Consider a hammock suspended under the roosting bar so that when the poop falls it lands in the hammock. Periodically, the hammock could be removed with the poop contained and emptied before replacing.

    Recycle feed bags as poop hammocks! It works great and when they get gross, you can toss them out and start over.
