    A friend of ours works at a pet supermarket, and the pet food comes wrapped in a very heavy duty, stiff, black plastic tarp that they throw away. She gave me two pieces which I use as a mat on the poop deck under the roost. I can pull it out and scrape it once a week. This is a free solution to keeping the coop clean!

    Here is a picture:

    Or maybe she looking and thinking "oh man, it gets bigger and harder later?!"

    Love the mat idea. Is it slippery or have a texture?

    I love the sunny yellow and blue colors in your coop [​IMG] And the quizzical look and hairdo on that adorable little chick - he/she reminds me of Calvin (of Calvin & Hobbes comic strip) - so funny!
