    I've been wanting to build something like this for a while and finally got around to it. I used a collection of photos from this website and the internet to help in the design. the trays slide out for easy cleaning. I fill them with sand and stall dry and scoop them out with a litter scoop. This system also helps my duck (who sleeps on the ground under the roosts) from being pooped on.

    Another cheap item to use are the trays that you mix cement in. They are black, tough plastic and fairly cheap.
