Cleaning a coop

post #1 of 5

How would I go about cleaning my coop before I put new chicks in it. Would I just pressure wash it or do I need to spray of with something to clean it?

Why do  you need to clean it? What was in there before?

Unless you had diseased birds in there recently, you don't need to do anything. Being exposed to other chicken's leavings is good for a chick's immune system. My coops/pens have not been cleaned in pretty much forever, besides stripping bedding once a year or so. I add chicks all the time and have no issues.

I was just uncertain if I needed to clean it before I moved new chickens into it. I'll move it to a different location in the yard. Just needed to know if I needed to clean. Thanks

Unless u have had diseased chickens in there before their is no need to wash it. You could pressure wash it if you wanted to,but don't have to.
The key to a happy flock is to be there for them. You have to do your job so they can do theirs. Your coop layout is also important. It doesn't have to be fancy just functional.http://www.backyardchickens.com/a/just-a-chicken-coop Is an example of it.
