How are you planning on cleaning the poop off the floor? Most of the portable chicken coops I've seen don't have a floor, they sit on the ground. You simply just move it to other areas.
Drive it into a pool filled with tilapia

the back section i used metal grate so the poop can be swept towards the back door and it will fall underneath the trailer.

In your case you could scrape the neighbor's yard and dump the soil in yours.

I have most of the fill in and front yard filled and graded. Just need about another foot for the house pad. There's a high school that's either tearing out or putting in or both, a football field or something. I was put in touch with the guy who's doing the hauling for the job so I should have plenty of topsoil.
I also took a bunch of cuttings from the apple tree and trying to root them in the cloner.
Speaking of trees, @Dragos28 didn't you say something about hybrid willows? I'm ordering a bunch for the property. This is on the way to work. It's a hybrid willow. It wasn't there 2-3 yrs ago. They grow fast. The weeping willow on the right of it was only 3' tall a few years ago.

Willows are not trees, they are tall weeds.

Technically, there's no such thing as a weed.
A weed is simply any plant that somone finds undesirable.
A dandelion is a dandelion. If you like them, they're a dandelion. If you dont like them, they're a "weed".
It's a subjective term and not a definition.
By definition, there are numerous species of willow.
Some are shrubs, some are trees.
It's only a "weed" if you don't like it and want it gone.

Either way, I like them and I will plant a fuk ton of black and hybrid willow all over the place because they will thrive in the wet soil and help soak up a lot of excess water. Plus I'll use a few to stabilize the creek bank.

Right. So after a few years of cleaning under it and trimming, you will consider it a "weed".

Yeah, I'm kinda fuk'd with that regardless at the new place. There's gonna be leaves and tree shit everywhere.
I won't be putting wilows too close to the house. Not so much for the mess, but it's soft wood.

There's a lot of eastern cotton wood in my area and about 6 billion of them on my property. There's also a lot of silver maple in the section around where the house is going. It will be a full time job if I want to keep the driveway and front yard relatively clean looking.
Willows will go on the perimeter to add privacy and soak up extra run-off from the areas I built up. A few along the creek bank which is over 150' from the house at it's closest point and that side is down wind. Maybe one in the back to shade the future pond in case I want to keeo some fish in it. Also down wind.
Btw, I'm not planting any weeping willows, if that's the tree you are thinking. I have black willow cuttings and I'm ordering hybrid willows.
