Moss Phlox (Phlox subulata) is a richly flowering, clump-forming phlox that stays green in both summer and winter. In spring these plants produce innumerable crimson and white flowers that attract butterflies. These Phlox like to be planted in full sunshine.

This coop has a "poop chute" that can roll out of the coop, which allows you to spray down the coop and have the water go out into a bucket for easier cleaning. Then you can dump the bucket into your compost pile.

Love the way this person has positioned rocks and pebbles around Water-Can ~ no way can chickens kick up dirt from stone and dirty the water.

Natural Coop Disinfectant
Chicken Coop Disinfectant Recipe - orange peels steeped in vinegar for a month, then put in a spray bottle. My all-natural store-bought poultry protector smells like that, no wonder. Making my own would be much less expensive. It is sprayed inside the coop when I clean it to discourage mites, fleas, bugs, etc.

Clean Coop Tips. One secret is raised water with a neat stone-apron surround, feed served up off the ground, lots of good clean litter, fresh air (look at all the hardware cloth!) and room to strut.
