    I have a Sleeper/Brooder that has a pop door that goes to the coop a side door that is the entire run side that opens up completely and then the back door where it drops down to sneak the eggs from. Well daily I open up the pop door and leave it up and pull back the side to clean the poop board and push all the bed shaving back in 2 of the 3 dividers they kick around and clean that up.

    Does anyone open and air out the sleeper? I put DE in the bedding material 1 time a month and then I keep the doors open so the can perch in there during they day as a choice which they do on occasion or run through the coop up the ramp and through the side door as a sneaky way to catch up with the other kids.

    It smells fresh and clean and has no real odor buildup. What do you do?

    Certainly not an expert, not sure i'm up to novice. But since you had no other replies............

    I've read many many times, basically, no odor, no problem.
