    I am new to having chickens and I would like to know what you use to clean the inside of your coop including walls

    I just use soap, water, and a rag/clorox wipes for the walls, but that's since I built my coop up against pre-existing concrete walls. I have a dirt floor so I just use a shovel and bucket to clean out their poop.

    I use river sand so I clean the poop daily but how often do you clean the walls? Thank you for replying [​IMG]

    I use the deep litter method and clean in spring and fall. I have only had chickens for two years and haven't cleaned the walls yet other than using a shop vac but this spring I am going to use a power washer to wash the walls and then white wash them. From here on out I plan on white washing every spring.

    On the rare occasions that I clean the walls (maybe once every Spring......I am not completely sure how often)


    Anyway, I scrub the walls with a dry stiff brush, and then I sweep everything out.

    The floor I just shovel out, scrape, then sweep.

    Last summer I put in poop trays.....very nice, they keep the floor so much cleaner.
