I did a search & can't find what I'm looking for, but I'm sure it's been addressed before & I apologize. But my problem is that I bought a "chick" coop from a friend that still smells bad after I cleaned it. It's in pretty bad shape, with the bottom & sides made of particle board. I've already cut wood to put over that stuff so the chicks don't get splinters, but I don't want to put the wood on top of "stinky"! What can I use on particle board to get it clean & get rid of the smell, that won't harm the chicks when they go in? Also, is there any danger that they might catch a disease from a used brooder? Like I said, I've cleaned it & it's been in the sun for days, but that awful thought just came to me today. I have 9 five day old chicks in a big tub & that's working for now, but I need to get them into something bigger pretty quickly. Any advice? Thank you!
