I've had my flock for almost 3 years, and it's sadly time for them to go. They'll be leaving sometime in the fall, and I'll be getting new chicks in the spring. I need to clean everything and get rid of all the old diseases for my new flock, and I was wondering how to do it and if you guys have any suggestions. My chickens have been in the same place with a small fenced area for them to run in and a coop for about 2/3 the time I've had them. I'm planning on doing a big coop cleanout and tilling the run area, then leaving it during the winter. Are there any suggestions for getting away all of the diseases and things to prepare for my new chicks? Also, the chicks will be staying in a brooder for a few months before I put them in the coop. Thanks!
