A walk-in coop is a lot easier to clean but, if you have one that isn’t, these materials, tools and tips could absolutely help you as well.

The Chicken Run:

✔️ I clean the run with a dog 💩 scoop I found locally. You can also find it online (ask me where!)
✔️ The floor is a crushed granite sand. You’ll want something that is a bit coarse and not super fine. Play sand is not an option as it can harm the chicken’s respiratory system.

The Coop:
✔️ I use a kitty litter scoop with a long handle to clean the roost shelf.
✔️ I use coffee ground bedding for the inside of the coop. This bedding is processed to be safe for chicke Chicken, Cute Chickens, Baby Chickens, Chickens, Cute Chicken Coops, Mini Farm, Coop, Chickens Backyard, Chicken Mom

Okay, confession time, this is not actually a DIY dutch door for the chicken coop, it's more of a double door! Two small doors that open individually, like a dutch door, but no way to open them together because of the latches! Either way, call it what you want😜, it works perfectly for the chicken coop because you can close the lower door while the chickens are out roaming and keep large animals out of the coop.
