New from Las Vegas, NV NEED HELP

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,
I'm looking for advice on the safest way to make an area habitable again. The house I live in had a pre-existing coop area that was as of late inhabited by pigeons. As I was cleaning it out for my new chicks to live in when they get big enough I realized it was literally full of dead diseased birds and was a huge nasty boneyard. I have cleared all the clutter, raked and shoveled, and now I'm down to the dirt of the coop but I really want to make sure it's safe. Any suggestions on what to do next?

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

From the sound of it, I don't think I would want new birds anywhere near that coop or the ground it stands on.  Is it possible to start with a new coop build on a different  area of land - as far from the pigeon disaster as possible?

I have heard that you can clean coops very well with a backpack sprayer and disenfectant.

Spry with 50/50 mix of bleach and water soak it well and let it dry for a week or so. Should kill any germs placenta new wood chips or construction grade sand on the floor for new bedding
