    My husband laid a concrete floor inside our coop. Now he puts down straw and it sticks to the concrete and really hard to clean up now.

    What is the easiest floor in a coop to clean up?

    I'm getting ready to fence in more of our land so the chickens can have more land to free range, but they will still have to roost in the coop at night ,


    I want a bigger one, but surely there is an easier floor to help with clean up.

    Concrete may take some effort to clean, but it's still the best.
    It's the only floor that's 100% predator proof.
    Lay a thin layer of sand before putting down the straw, That might help.

    Good luck
