Weeks later, chicks and mother hen still have separate quarters. Some chicks will go to sales barn.
We can now open both sides to the whole flock
I usually let them all free range but dog cages worked well as temporary runs. Best runs are 1" or less steel mesh.
Time to disassemble and disinfect the chicken coop, and move it to fresh ground (every 3 to 5 years)
Brooder roof is off.
The walls come out of cedar foundation frame.
I take the rich soil from the natural earth brooder floor..
and put it under my fruit trees.
Brooder floor had 4" soil over1/2" steel mesh for natural drainage, and protected indoor hatching and scratching area.

The insulated ceiling comes out.
Unscrew the walls.
Take the nest, roost, droppings tray, and cedar feed boards out.
