    Hello,
    Questions for the sandy coop people. What size holes or spacing does the sand scoop need to have?

    Heard from chicken chik 1/2" is too much. Thinking .25" would be better. I am going to weld up my own heavy duty scoop. Plan is to drill a bunch of small holes in it for the sand to fall through. But the poop stays in shovel.

    Also, same question but for baby chicks? Their poop is smaller(ish)

    Thanks
