I'd imagine that you 100% raw feeders don't pick up? I will give Empire a couple of raw meals a week and his poo turns white and then to dust after a raw meal with bone.

Hey!! I need this for my yard. Is that rock in there? How difficult was it to get him/her to use that instead of grass? Thanks!

Summer, winter, every day. If the snow comes down 18 inches in a few hours, I might miss a few offerings, but I go out and look for it. If it is -11 F, then it is frozen solid, and in some ways easier to pick up after you break it free of the concrete. With a number of critters, it will build up fast. And yes, keeping the poo to a minimum means less flies.

We live on a hillside. I fling it down the hillside. We are not near a water source.

Once a day, now that he's older and doesnt poop as often/ no longer eats his poop. I can just take him outside and say " where's the poop." ( we're How I met your mother fans) he will find them and I scoop them up.

Fortunately we have a lot of property and also walk in the woods daily so I probably couldn't even find any poop if I tried

Almost every day. Although it is mainly because of my old Newfie cross. He poops a lot! My GSD has cut down on the "output" tremendously since we started raw. Plus she likes to do her business while on a walk in the woods....

Daily. Pretty much every time I see her go.
