5. Tarp Method My friend Hope E. Tolda, owner of Fancy Feathers Farm, uses the tarp method on her farm and is able to clean 15 coops in less than 1½ hours. Lay a tarp on the coop floor and top with straw. When the straw needs to be changed, fold the tarp and dump the manure and straw into the compost pile. Pressure wash the tarp and disinfect it with vinegar or Oxine before rebedding the coop.
Chicken brooder from a plastic bin with a nipple-type waterer attached to a 5-gal bucket, 2-in PVC feeders zip-tied to the bin, a Brinsea EcoGlow heater and non-slip toolbox liner to go under the pine shavings. I even added a couple of roosting poles.
