    How do you keep it so clean inside? What is that that you are using for their coops?

    Quote:...lol..the dropping trays really help alot...when they get dirty,i just empty them....and..they are mostly outside in the attached pen during the day...so that also helps....the nest boxes are these storage, stackable things...made from pvc..so they are easy to clean also..take care, Wendy

    Just out of curiosity, how do all these coops get built without getting a lot of grief from building inspectors?

    I hear gunshots in the night, and people screaming, sirens and nothing happens. But if I am in the backyard hammering on something, anything, a city inspector will show up.

    Well I'm in the process of building one too so I'm wondering the same but I'm thinking if you are building a coop no bigger then one u can go to lowes or menards to buy a kit for , why should u have a permit?? Right? lol I think if you wanted to run water lines or electric to it though they might hollar for a permit. ??
