Sorry for the huge quote. Wanted to get everyone who's helping. It's a semi-permanent sort of thing, like this:
So if I clean the whole thing with ammonia and run it (lights on) overnight, and maybe drag it into the sun tomorrow (doubtful, it's really heavy) then put chicks in one compartment I can paint the others?
Honestly I should just keep them inside a day or two while I get the brooder ready, then put them in. Do I need to disinfect before I paint or just paint?
Accidentally took out too much quote. Oops.
It's only 7 week old chicks, each section is built for 20. So that's not a problem. I do puppy pads under paper towels until they reach that messy rotten stage (3-4 weeks?) then switch to shavings.
DH has said no babies in the house (guess the other three birds are enough) so I'll have to wait til their done to paint.
soap + water
Is that right, if not ideal?
