Why did we patent a poop tray?

It's a valid question.

Keeping your chicken coop clean and maintaining a healthy living environment for your feathered friends is crucial. We’re a group of bonafide chicken people here at Coop, so we understand it can be a less-than-enticing weekend chore. We also realize that notion of "chicken coop maintenance" can be a mental barrier for people who are thinking about getting chickens, but just not sure about the upkeep.

Our goal is to create a product that allows anyone, anywhere to easily experience all the joy and benefits of the backyard farm - but with a little less maintenance. So we started doing a little brainstorming.

Enter: The Patent Pending Compostable Disposable Coop Poop Litter Tray.

You shouldn't spend your Saturdays mucking the yuck. And with us, you wont. Every Coop purchase comes with a 1 year supply of trays for 30 second, not 3 hour, cleanings.

Simply slide out, toss, slide in and done.

Our removable and compostable litter tray the way you clean your chicken coop floor, saving you time and effort. If you're new to chickens, stick with us. We'll dive into the benefits of our easy-to-clean chicken coop floor, along with some general knowledge on creating an easy clean environment for your chickens.

1. What Makes a Chicken Coop Floor Easy to Clean?

An easy-to-clean chicken coop floor is essential for efficient coop maintenance. When planning your coop setup, consider the following design elements:

  • Smooth and Durable Surfaces: Opt for materials like concrete, vinyl, or linoleum that are easy to wipe or hose down, ensuring minimal waste absorption and quick cleaning.

  • Sloped Floors: Constructing a slightly sloped or edged floor helps with drainage, directing liquids away from the coop area. This prevents puddles and makes cleaning easier.

  • Removable Litter Trays: The star of the show, of course. By incorporating removable and compostable litter tray into your coop floor, you can eliminate the need for extensive scrubbing and ensure a sanitary environment.

2. Benefits of an Easy to Clean Chicken Coop Floor:

Having an easy-to-clean floor in your chicken coop offers several advantages:

  • Hygiene and Disease Prevention: Regularly cleaning your coop floor reduces the risk of bacteria, pests, and diseases. An easy-to-clean floor allows for thorough sanitation, maintaining a healthier living space for your chickens.

  • Time and Effort Savings: With an easy clean floor, you can spend less time on coop maintenance and more time enjoying your flock. Quick and efficient cleaning methods free up valuable time for other essential tasks or simply relaxing with your feathered friends.

  • Odor Control: A clean coop floor helps minimize odor buildup. Removing waste promptly prevents unpleasant smells from permeating your coop area.

  • Convenience: The convenience of an easy clean floor makes coop maintenance a hassle-free process. By implementing features like removable litter trays, you can streamline cleaning routines and keep your coop in top condition with minimal effort.

3. Maintaining a Clean and Healthy Coop:

In addition to an easy clean floor, here are some additional tips for maintaining a clean and healthy chicken coop:

  • Regular Spot Cleaning: Regularly remove any visible waste or soiled bedding from the coop floor to prevent the buildup of dirt and bacteria.

  • Bedding and Dust Management: Use absorbent bedding materials like straw, wood shavings, or pine pellets to help control moisture and odor. Regularly replace bedding as needed.

  • Proper Ventilation: Good airflow is essential for reducing moisture and ammonia levels in the coop. Ensure proper ventilation to maintain a fresh and healthy environment for your chickens.

The Power of a Removable Litter Tray: Like we mentioned above, our smart chicken coop is equipped with a removable litter tray that fits seamlessly into the coop's flooring system. This tray is specifically designed to capture droppings, bedding, and other waste materials, making it incredibly easy to clean. By removing the tray, you can quickly dispose of the waste and replace it with fresh bedding, ensuring a clean and hygienic environment for your chickens.

  • Compostable Material for Sustainable Cleaning: We take pride in using compostable materials for our litter tray, promoting eco-friendly practices. Once the tray is removed, you can compost the waste, turning it into nutrient-rich compost for your garden. This not only eliminates the hassle of dealing with messy waste but also contributes to a more sustainable and environmentally conscious approach to chicken coop maintenance.

  • Time-Saving Convenience: Cleaning your chicken coop can be a time-consuming task, but with our innovative litter tray system, it takes less than 2 minutes. The hassle of scrubbing and scrubbing the coop floor is eliminated, allowing you to spend more quality time with your flock. We understand that your time is valuable, and our easy-to-clean coop floor ensures that you can maintain a clean coop without sacrificing precious moments with your feathered companions.

  • Year's Supply of Litter Trays: To make your coop maintenance even more convenient, we provide a year's supply of our removable litter trays with every purchase of our coop. This means you'll have a steady stock of trays to effortlessly replace and maintain a clean coop throughout the year. We want to ensure that you have everything you need for a hassle-free coop cleaning experience.

Investing in a chicken coop with an easy-to-clean floor, such as our removable and compostable litter tray system, can significantly simplify your coop maintenance routine. By incorporating design elements that promote cleanliness and following proper coop hygiene practices, you can provide a clean and healthy environment for your chickens. Remember, a clean coop leads to happier and healthier chickens.
