We emptied our coop last fall. Cleaned it out and sold our chickens. They were old and I wasn't going to feed them all winter. For the worst winter ever, glad I did. There was 3 ft of snow to the coop almost the entire winter and now it is surrounded by water (never happened before in our 4 years here.) Anyway, we just hatched out some babies and have another order arriving in 2 weeks. My son approached me last night. "You know, I think we have a lot of work to do to get that coop ready." Yep we do! When we can get to it, I want to start with a good disinfecting. Any tips?
