Chicken Coop Cleaning

Summer chicken coop cleaning is as easy as cleaning it out once a week. Summertime can be the best time for raising chickens.

There are a number of different materials that chicken owners sure as bedding. – pine shavings – sand – straw

Remember that chicken compost is hot compost and can kill your pants if you add it right away. Always wait a year before using it.

Clear out all of the dirt, feathers, nesting materials, and bird droppings. Depending on the size of your coop, this could take some time.

Then refill with clean shavings. I give my birds a lot of shaving, about 5-7 inches worth.

You can add more ventilation in the summer.
