Monthly Cleaning of Chicken Coop

August 11

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every month that begins at 12:00am on day Second of the month, repeating indefinitely

Erica’s Notes

We’ve tried to design our chicken area to be pretty low maintenance, but there’s still basic daily care, and about once a month it’s important to do a deeper clean and freshening up of the coop.

I replace the shredded paper we use in the nesting boxes, top up or replace the coop floor litter, dust the coop, deal with any poop that escaped attention during daily maintenance, and cut new branches of bay leaf to hang in the coop.

This is also when we de-gunk the filter for the duck tub, clean out and compost the much from the swirl filter, spray down the duck’s bathing area, and replace or top up the duck water as needed.
