    Would someone give detailed instructions and how often to do this? Chicks I have are 2 weeks old. Thanks!

    take chicks out, clean out brooder, wash with 50/50 bleach water (if plastic)

    if wood do same thing but spray down with 50/50 solution let dry completely

    I deep-cleaned two weeks before the chicks arrived. That was the only time. I washed with dish soap, rinsed, bleached, and dried in the sun. If you have a new brooder and it's only had your chicks in it for two weeks, you don't really need to deep clean it.
