Now, poop doesn't just happen at night in the hen house, of course - it also happens all day long. Which leads me to tip #2...
2) Carbon, carbon, carbon. I highly recommend a deep litter system for the floor of your coop and/or your run. Bare dirt doesn't cut it. Concrete doesn't cut it, even though it seems like it'd be easier to keep clean. You want a couple of feet of carbon. Wood chips, straw, sawdust, wood shavings, leaves. Anything you got - use it. Look into free wood chips from the tree trimming companies. Get sawdust from a local sawmill or woodworker. Leaves - don't put them in your green bin! Put them in your coop instead. Collect your neighbor's leaves too!
The benefits of all this carbon are many-fold; you provide a substance to soak up all the nitrogen (urine and manure), you improve the soil underneath, you attract all the underground critters that process the carbon (earthworms, sow bugs, nematodes, microbes, etc) to improve the soil even more, you sequester carbon for the planet, you make a living compost pile, you make something for the chickens to do (scratch, peck, eat) and a way for them to exercise, and also prevent boredom, you take all that organic matter out of the waste stream. This all breaks down into rich soil you can then add to your compost or to your garden beds. If you're really on top of it and have a lot of room, you can build something to move the chickens around in, like large organic farms do, so that they get fresh 'pasture' every week or so, and they do the work of clearing land for you. This is all about stacking functions. How can we make everything work together? How can we make everything work in several different ways? Chickens provide food and entertainment for us, but what else can they do for us? Instead of looking at the poop as a problem, look at it as the solution to another problem.
Some folks recommend diatomaceous earth in the coop to help keep down pests. I love DE, but I don't use it in the coop because DE kills microbes in the soil. And you want those microbes, because they will actively break down the deep litter. They will process the manure and urine along with the carbon. Chickens can use any dust to clean themselves, including the products of the mulch; mine do it every day. They dig down a bit in the deep litter and find a pocket of dirt or sawdust. Then they bathe. They don't need DE for dust baths.
