    if this is the wrong forum please direct me to the right one....
    I am wondering what is the best method of sanitizing a coop. I'm thinking whitewash like my father did with the milk house. Is there an easier way?

    What are you sanitizing for - are you cleaning an old coop to prepare for birds, cleaning after an illness (if so what illness), or ?

    I have sick chickens! The coop is 2 years old. My leghorns are laying lash eggs and having vent prolapse. Lost 5 girls before I figured it out. And I have 2 silkies with wry neck/mareks not sure which. Ready to throw in the towel. Thought maybe sanitizing the coop might help in some way.
