    I had 12 very healthy pullets I sold, mainly because I can't eat all the eggs, and am going in the hole.

    I want the use the chicken yard to house my dog.

    The yard is a 6Foot by 3Foot chain link kennel. What should I use to disinfect it to house my dog?

    I thought of water and hydrogen peroxide. I know bleach is toxic to dogs and children.

    He's a healthy german shepherd. We also have a back yard surrounded by a nice wooden fence, but right now he needs to be contained at times.

    How do I keep him healthy? He is 9 months old.

    to be quite honest. water, soap and alot of elbow grease will do a perfectly fine job... get one of those multiple choice squirter things, make sure it has "jet" as an option. that should do a really good job, especially if your chickens were healthy. My dog walks around the chicken area all the time and hes more than healthy! :) the main thing is you want to make sure you dont leave any droppings or stuff like that in the hen yard!

    We do have bedding in the yard so I hit it pretty heavy with plain water. But soap sounds good:)
