    After I lime the inside of my coop, how long do I have to wait before I let the chickens back in?

    We used to use it all the time on the horse stalls and it works well on drying up the floors. Be careful not to breathe it in. Lime is safe for animals and you can put them back in immediately. Here is a link you might want to read about using it in the chicken coop.

    We also allow our birds immediate access after liming our coops.
