For the Monday With The Poultry this week, we look at cleaning the big chicken coop out. This coop has been left to deep pile over the winter, and its now time to clean it out.
The big chicken coop is deep piled bedding. What this means is that we add more clean bedding, on top of the older stuff. This allows the chickens to dig through it, root around and churn it all over. It doesn’t smell that much at all, and compared to many other bedding styles, is one of the best (in our opinion). You can see in the video that it is dry, and still of great quality, even though its being removed.
