    Help! Barn swallows found way into hen house. Now that the
    entry is closed, do I need to completely change and clean the
    hen house? Please advise as I know outside birds do carry
    disease.

    I'd clean up around the nest (assuming they built one) and then spray the coop with a 10% Clorox solution.

    If your birds free range, you can't avoid some "contact" with wild birds

    Spray some poultry protector or the like on the walls and ceiling and let it air out.
