The Chicken Coop Poop Gutter

There are a couple of really neat ideas in this article for folks that have chickens. My favorite idea from the article is the chicken poop gutter. Plough and Stars Project came up with this idea of hanging an old gutter under where the chickens roost at night so that they can just take the gutter out and empty it straight into the compost.

They said they only really have to clean the coop about once per month now and it has really cut down on flies. They have a couple other ideas for the chickens and their coop that you can check out as well but this poop gutter is totally brilliant.
