Once a week, I remove the ramp, take it out of the run, scrub with soap and water, dry it and replace it. The first time, I was so proud that they would have a clean walk...but in seconds, one or another always goes up and poops just outside the coop door! Why???? The first time, I removed it immediately, but now just let it lay. The first time this happened, my husband yelled to them "the first to poop the ramp gets a worm". ( but did not do follow thru on the promise) Do you think they understood and keep hoping he will follow up on the promise? Or just think it is funny. Haven't heard them laugh yet, but think they are smiling!
