UGHHH! A lot of my birds have been in the basement since Christmas when I moved to the new house. We are gradually tossing them out as we get new coops done, but the basement is going to need to be HOSED when we get the last of them out. We have done what we can to keep everything shoveled out, but it all still smells like chicken poop. I'll be breaking out the gallons of bleach & the power washer. How can do you put up with the smell that long? Our other farmer neighbors get chicken manure trucked in for fertilzer. for their fields. The air smells horrible until they decide to spread it.
