Cleaning the Coop for Coccidosis
Hello! I am new to this group, and new to chicken rearing; we "rescued" five hens from my daughter's school in December. The flock at school had been dealing with coccidiosis. We medicated the hens, and they have been very robust since; one of the hens has become vulnerable to it, and is exhibiting symptoms. We want to medicate them again, but have been instructed by our vet friend to make sure that we keep the environment clean. How is the best way, other than removing beds and droppings to do this? How extreme do you have to get, and what applications or cleaning solutions? Please offer any other helpful suggestions or advice as you think will help. Thank yoU!
