When you are ready to give us a call to talk about your new coop. Be sure to ask us about our Cleaner Coop Cage. This is a great feature that makes cleaning your coop a much easier task.
When you order a cleaner coop cage we will wire in the roosting bars down to the floor to keep the dropping separate from the remainder of the floor in the coop.
Then we install a pull out tray that can be accessed from the outside via a hatch that is hinged. Simply pull out the glasbord laminate tray and clean it off and reinstall it in the hatch and close.
Now while you may still need to access your coop to change bedding etc. The easy clean chicken coop cage will definitely alleviate most of the dirty work.
We can also install glasbord laminate on the remaining part of your floor. The better news is that when you purchase our most popular coop. It already has a glassboard floor in it. Just add the cleaner coop cage.
I know, I know. I have been using the term Glasbord throughout the content of this blog and you may think I have been spelling it wrong. But Glasbord is an actual product. Glasbord is a fiberglass reinforced plastic panel with an textured finish that is durable and flexible and will not mold, mildew or rot. In addition Glasbord is very resistant to chemicals and moisture and has excellent cleanability and stain resistance. Concerned that it may be harmful to the birds. Glasbord surpasses the USDA and FSIS requirements for safety.
