Noob alert! have 6 pullets, that we have raised from 5 days old, in a coop, with a 20x40 outside run. Sand is the base for the coop (with a little DTE) with dirt, hay and leaves outside the coop. I have been taking the poop out of the enclosed run, scooping it up with the hay and leaves, and depositing it in a pile along the side of the house. For the outside area, I just rake up hay and poop with a muck rake, and throw it on he same pile I'm pretty sure this is not a sustainable way to manage waste. Any advise is appreciated![/IMG][/IMG][/IMG] I'm thinking we will bag up he entire pile this spring, and start over with a better method. I've included pics of my pulleys, coop, and chicken yard.
