    As I prepared to floor the coop I discovered a HUGE wasp nest built up under the roost. It was full of wasps! My DH (without checking with me first) hosed it down with wasp killer and the problem was taken care of.

    Question - I hosed down the coop thoroughly for about 5 minutes and then squeeged out the water excess and fan dried it. Do you think I got all of the wasp killer out?? Do you think this will affect my flock when I bring them in two weeks from now??

    Thanks for the guidance!

    I'm new at this chicken thing. Look and see if the incecticide was oil based. Sometimes they have instructions on the can. You might have to use a mild detergent like dishsoap and water. I understand your concern. Hope this helps.[​IMG]
