Cleaning your chicken coop must become a regular part of your
life, not something you remember to do now and again. Dirty unkept
living quarters is where a lot of your problems can begin,
so this is why it is probably one of the most important things
you can do to prevent infestations and diseases.
Effective cleaning cannot happen while your hens are resident,
so temporarily evict them into their outside pen with a tasty
treat or two, while you get on with the cleaning.
Bedding must be changed regularly, particularly if it gets damp.
Make sure you remove all bedding, even from the corners, and wash
and scrub away any that sticks in place. Allow the coop floor
to dry if necessary before putting in new bedding.
Roosting areas should be cleaned and disinfected regularly, especially
under the perches themselves, where parasites and insects can
Water dispensers and feeding dishes should be scrubbed clean,
rinsed thoroughly and dried before returning to use.
We recommend you use at least one of the three chicken
house cleaning products above when you clean out your coop.
