I bought 2 new poop scrapers at the dollar store today. They are great at removing poop from the roosts and poop boards. The best part about these ones......they have a hand cover to keep the poop off of me for once! Lol Ok, I know they are ice scrapers. I usually keep plastic paint scrapers in all my coops, but they tend to get lost and I often get the poop on my hand. Yuck! These are larger (read...harder to lose) and more sturdy. I figured that for $1 each, I can't go wrong!
I'm a pretty big fan of using dollar store items for the chickens. I always buy dog bowls, puppy pee pads, band aids, sponges, baby bottle brushes, marbles, and colorful zip-ties at the Dollar Tree. In the Spring they also carry buckets and butterfly nets (good for catching chicks). Why pay more, right?
How do you save money on chicken supplies?
