Also curious. Considered a full drawer, it opted not to given the large footprint (4x8). I live in a hot and humid place and imagined the wood swelling, getting misaligned, etc. and turning into a smelly mess.Will be curious to see how it works out in winter.
What does it look like inside the coop?
Thank you for putting up he info on prices for pitchforks. I almost spilled my coffee when she/he quoated $100 for one. Some one is selling her/him a load of bull.https://www.lowes.com/pd/CRAFTSMAN-54-in-L-Wood-handle-Forged-Manure-Fork/1000752726
Most under $40.
Not fair! I love my pitch fork. Maybe for your birthday?We all have something we wish was invented to make chicken keeping better, and I was wondering what yours were. I have to clean the shavings in my coop with a broom and a tub, sweeping out all the shavings. I then have to scrub the floor on my hands and knees, all because my family won't let me get a pitchfork! What are yours, I'm interested to find out!
You *can* pay that much for very fancy models that look like a cat litter scoop mated with an old-fashioned cherry picker basket. I guess they're for cleaning horse stalls?Thank you for putting up he info on prices for pitchforks. I almost spilled my coffee when she/he quoated $100 for one.

Well, a even if you used a pitchfork you'd still probably have to use the broom.
You mean they won't buy it for you? Buy it yourself.
No need to 'scrub' anything.
Ditto Dat x100!
We use a power washer, and it is great! Our climate here in No. California is quite dry, our coop is well-ventilated, and we wash on sunny days. The wood dries out in no time. Every situation is different. We recently used it to clean the deck and rid the exterior of the house of cobwebs.Really recommend against that. Is your coop wood? DRY is key for a coop, not to get it surface clean according to human standards.
Ask for the pitchfork instead.
