How long do you leave the easy bed down before it gets changed ?, if long term do you just keep racking it over or change it weekly

chris, I remove droppings every few days under the perches......if I have time its alternate days, but at least every 3 to 4 days.

I then rake it over evenly again around the loft, and every so often I had some new/fresh to it...
