So I am taking a vacation day this Friday (going to be sunny and near 80 degrees) to give my coop it's spring scrub down. I remove everthing and scrub down and scrub down the inside of the coop with a bleach solution and of course replace all the bedding. So the "funny" thing about this whole process is that it takes about a half a day and the majority of the time is letting the coop dry out real good before replacing the roosts, nesting boxes and of course putting down new bedding . This whole time the chickens are locked in their run. The hens stand on their ramp and some of the ones gifted with a good deal of flight, fly to the window sills and complain and raise all kinds of fuss with me. I know they are saying: WE NEED TO LAY OUR EGGS, HURRY WE CAN'T HOLD IT MUCH LONGER!!!!! I clean the nest boxes first thing and place them in the run for them but apparently it's just not the same!!
