This morning I have already run to TSC to get feed, scratch, wood shavings, fly traps and wood pellets. I still need to go pick up straw! I have set up and put the incubator on lock down, cleaned out the small brooder housing the 1 and 2 week old chicks, fed and watered the chickens and ducks. I still need to clean out and set up the large brooder to transfer the older chicks and clean out the entire chicken coop! I would have had another month or two before having to clean out the coop but last night at about 8pm my 4 1/2 year old daughter thought it would be nice to give the chickens a bath! She doused the whole inside of the coop with the hose! It is the stinkiest, mushiest mess I have ever seen. My hubby will be home from work in an hour with a respirator. The smell gags me so much I can't go in there! It amazes me how my coop had no odor to it at all when it was dry but now that it's wet, WOW! My TSC doesn't have DE but they do have Sweet PDZ. Can I get that to sprinkle in the shavings to help it dry out in there once it is cleaned and new shavings laid?
