White Powery stuff coating everything inside the coop... - Page 2

post #11 of 13

The two leaf blower method works great.

 

Dust was the curse of deep bedding. Now I actually look forward to "dusting". 

 

Removing dust the easy way.

Heat the nesting boxes to stop eggs from freezing.

Forever Water Heater one that lasts.

Unfrozen Nipple Watering for those cold days.

Removing dust the easy way.

Quick and Easy 5 Gallon Waterer.

Looks like a good idea @RonP thanks for the link!

 

Even though we are in the "middle of winter" we had a really nice day yesterday, so I decided to open all the "summer" windows of the coop and vacuum really good. Don't have a leaf blower, but I have been tempted to drag the air compressor hose inside to blow out the coop:D

That dust sticks to everything.

Ron's technique has stuck in my mind.....

.....I have a shop vac with a removable blower motor that might work.

Doesn't give cfm tho...my coop is about 2500cf with 48 sqft of venting in eaves with windows closed.

 

I was also thinking of using the air compressor to 'stir things up'....

.....blow dust off the mesh walls and what ever else needs it.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

"Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it."
