I'm going to be doing a deep clean/new paint job in the coop next week, and I am looking for the easiest way to get rid of the shavings. Normally, I shovel it into a wheelbarrow, and then take it to the compost pile. However, the pile had been moved and I can't get to it without the tractor. I am not allowed to use the tractor anymore (and unfortunate tipping accident) and I will be alone that day. My question is, can I just sweep all the shavings out to the run? We do this with grass clippings the chickens get rid of it by the end of the day. If I do this, how long will it take for the shavings to go away?
