Chicken Saloon reviews the best products to maintain your coop

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

At Chicken Saloon, we are always on the hunt for the perfect maintenance products for chicken coops. Many of our customers who are new to chicken coops and raising chickens don't know about the wonderful products out there!

 

What would you recommend for maintaining your chicken coop? We would love to share this thread with our customers and even take your suggestions for future blog posts.

 

We'll kick off the thread with a few Chicken Saloon review favorites. Thanks for your suggestions BYC!

Using essential oils for bug deterrents

 

One thing that has been helpful in keeping flies and small insects away from our chickens is a combination of distilled water, lavender and citronella! We don't have an exact formula- typically we fill a spray bottle with the water and about 5 drops lavender and double drops of citronella.

 

We leave lavender leaves in the nesting boxes for an aromatic stress reliever too, especially right after a run in with predators or bringing in new chickens to the group.
