In the Brooder
- Apr 22, 2014
I hope I am posting in the correct place. We have finally decided to get chickens and will be picking our chicks up next week. We are still working out what we are going to do for a coop. We have an old wooden children's playhouse that has not been used in 15 years. Is it safe to turn it into a coop? We have no idea what wild animals/rodents have called it home over the last 15 years. Would it be possible to sanitize it enough to be safe for our chickens? If there are mites/lice/fleas etc from wild animals in it are those easy to clean away with a good scrubbing? Thanks for any tips/advice.
