    Hey guys! I have several 4X8X4 Hutch type pens that I have been breeding chickens for a couple years in. What do you guys suggest I do to clean them out enough to house my Californias in? I am thinking a good bleaching and hosing, but just want to see if you guys have any other suggestions/ideals. And no, I am not going to bleach it so bad the fumes kill the new inhabitants! So don't ramble off about random common sense aspects like that.. [​IMG]

    I'D BLEACH THE SNOT OUT OF THEM TWICE AND ALLOW TO AIR DRY AFTER EACH CLEANING... CANT GET MUCH MORE DISINFECTED THAN THAT SHORT OF A NUCLEAR BLAST... [​IMG]

    JJMR794.. btw.. what is the market value of a pair of Lady Amherst that aren't yet colored out? I am shopping around and trying to see if the prices I am seeing are too high or just right.

    Also Always Take Into Consideration That Prices Vary Greatly From 1 Region To The Next [​IMG]
