Pretty soon we will be parking the chicken tractor for the winter and I was wondering what to use to clean the inside with. I plan on sweeping/shoveling out all the litter that is currently in there, sweeping down the walls and ceilings and nest boxes and scrubbing it out good before putting in the de and litter. The floor is relatively clean as we used the deep litter method over the summer/fall and I am fastidious about keeping the litter turned and adding to it when necessary. The roost bar, however, needs a good scrub. What does everyone use that is safe for cleaning/disinfecting their coop? I have no issues with parasites of any kind, either internal or external. I will be using de in all the little spaces and on the floor and in the nest boxes just to be sure that one doesnt develop. I also use pine shavings. Any advice would be appreciated. My girls are clean, healthy and giving me eggs every day and I want to keep them that way over the winter. Thanks!
