Ok, so i have a terrible coop situation, and i've been putting it off, but i decided that i needed to post on here and ask for some advice. I have a coop that's just a wood frame with tin on the outside and a dirt bottom. It used to be an old milk barn, and we just moved it to use for a chicken coop. It has a divider wall in it, with the roosts on one side, and the nesting area on the other side. Then there's 2 big doors that are just metal hardware cloth. These are probably 10 feet tall or so, and 5 feet wide. One goes to the roosting area, and the other goes to the nesting area. I have 30 chickens, and they free range all day, so aren't in the coop very much. Since the floor is dirt, i have a hard time keeping it clean. I try and clean out all the poo and put more bedding in it occasionally. Wild birds practically live in there, because they can fit through the doors. So they eat the feed, and poop in there. Another problem is, almost all my birds have scaly leg mites. I've tried vaseline several times, but i figure they live on the roosts. I'm going to go out and post pics in the morning, but here are some of my questions: 1. Do i have enough ventilation? 2. How am i supposed to treat these leg mites? 3. How do i clean/manage my coop floors, considering they are dirt? You'll probably have to wait for pics to answer these questions. I just decided I'd go ahead and post. It's dark outside now, so will post pics in the morning. I might come up with more questions tomorrow! Thanks for looking!
