I did rake up the chicken run this last weekend and dump it in the compost, but we didn't really think it was necessary I just wanted to clean it up before my kid has her birthday party lol. I do scrap poo off the roosts, steps, and ramps probably once a week, but I just let it drop onto the litter. Just curious what people think of it. I do think it's great to encourage more people to keep chickens, it's so much fun for the family and great for kids to see where food comes from so anything positive is good I think.
