Homemade Chicken Food "I finally calculated the cost of making this per pound. Based on the price we paid for the grains as of June, 2013 it equates out to .47 cents per pound. Our 15 layers currently eat 1.75 pounds per day, which means it costs us .81 cents per day to feed them this diet."
Chicken Anatomy: The Crop, Impacted Crop & Sour Crop

So why is this wire mesh attached to my pitchfork? Because I've turned our chicken coop into one big litter box. After doing this for the last year or so, I can easily say that this method is a winner. I added a 2-inch layer of coarse sand to the bottom of the coop and use my "pooper scooper" to pick up the poop. And the coop doesn't smell! That's half the battle in keeping critters away. Once a year, clean out all the sand and start over and you're good to go.
