Coop ground

The ground in my chicken run is currently dirt and straw. But my girls have come down sick and dying and I have no clue where to start. So I thought about their coop design and health. Any suggestions on sanitizing the coop ? What do you use for the ground outside
I would take a almost dead, or freshly dead chicken to your vet, and have them test to find out the cause.

I know it might be expensive, but you need to know what you are dealing with before you can start to fix it.

There are way too many possibilities.

Also, I AM SO SORRY! This must be so horrid for you!
Before taking a dead or dying chicken anywhere, call around to find someone to look at the chicken first. Not all vets are experienced in avian care. Your local cooperative extension office may be a good choice to find someone to do this chore.

Agrees, you first need to find out what killed the chickens before you can fix it.

Where did you get the chickens?
How old were they when you got them?
How long did you have them before they started dying?

Might want to provide this info in the health forum instead of the construction forum.
