    I am almost done building a new chicken coop for the chickens. After I move them, I want to raise pheasants in the area that is the chicken coop now.

    I plan to use a bleach solution to clean and scrub the walls. The floor is sand/dirt, inside and out.

    How long should I leave it dormant, empty, before bringing pheasants in?
    Is there any other cleaning preparations I can do?
    Is it ok to raise pheasants and quail together?

    Thanks! [​IMG]
