In the Brooder
- May 18, 2011
We have our chicks in a spare room. We bought a floor covering (roll-out linoleum from Home Depot) to go over the hardwood. I go in and clean up poop about 8-10 times each day (basically whenever I go in to check on them). Anyway, whenever I can't get one up cleanly with paper towels, I spray with Chlorox disinfectant. And then every other day, I wipe down the entire floor with the Chlorox. Is this bad for the chicks? Is there something I should do instead? Everything I read says that cleanliness is important, but maybe I am going overboard.
