I'll share pics of the current one tomorr.

Clover! you're not far from me (I'm about 12 miles south of Chester)!

We're a violent bunch...lol. I'm a little bit surprised how many people on here share the fire bug...I thought most would feel it's extreme. :hu

 

Now I DID say burn it down...when I was thinking these were Gysot's birds being brought onto this new property and into this chicken coop. BUT these are the birds that "have" been at this farm all along and they've already been exposed. With scraping, TLC and some adjustments...they can "probably" still use this building???  It's not like they haven't been exposed to it already, right?

 

IF these were birds that had never touched the property...then my thoughts on burning the coop too the ground still stand.

 

@FlyWheel  That's true, I wasn't thinking of the smoke. It's just that I feel uncomfortable using gasoline, it's so quick. I live in the sticks so no one's going to have issues with either here. My closest neighbor's 1.5 miles away. Everyone else is 3+ miles away.

:yesss:

One day we will have a world where a chicken can cross the road without being questioned about their motives. smile.png

Well once I can get the new one built I do plan on calling the local FD to help do a controlled burn.

For now I just want to keep my birds alive and as healthy as I can.

Update:

I made some progress today. I got some ventilation in and cleaned the floors.

That looks great!

Are you going to put down some new bedding?

If it stink in there throwing down some PDZ(zeolite) under the bedding might really help.

Don't be surprised if the birds don't appreciate your efforts, the new bedding might freak then out.

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!!!

Yeah, I'll end up getting some bedding for them. Everywhere was closed today that I can get it from.
