My coop is big enough for my birds, but only just big enough. There is more of a poopy presence that I prefer, even with regular maintenance. Here are my problem areas. 1) My roosts are too close to the wall so there is crap all over the walls. Pretty easy fix (for DH ) But I plan to get the walls as clean as humanly possible and then repaint with something a bit more scrubbable. We did not use the best paint the first time round. Do I need to do anything to the walls other than scrub? Can I paint right over any old stains? 2) My poop boards. In the winter the stupid poop freezes in these poop piles which become poop mountains. It freezes right to the board overnight and it's tough to remove. I want to remove the boards and use some sort of plastic boot tray or something. Does anyone in cold climate have experience with the frozen poop problem and a good solution? 3) Roosts and ladders. Why is it that I can never get these totally clean? Especially their ramp from the coop down to the run. It is painted white. It is now brown. I have been out there with a bleach spray and a wire brush and scrubbed for a long time and it still looks gross. Solutions? Or am I just being too OCD about this?
