Clean what? poop gets nicely dried out by the ash I use, any other bits of poop in boxes (use ash there too) you dry brush off? Plastic coup you could jet wash without risk of leaving it wet, but why are you clearing your box that analy it's a chicken coup, they walk in there own ****, scratch soil and eat bugs and worms. As long as your chucks clean themselves it's all good. Chickens are clever and resilient, people complain chickens die all the time for no reason. Just isn't the case.

Give the chap a break, have you seen the pictures of his setup - he's just a very keen enthusiast.

Don't use straw or use a wood based bedding on the floor it harbours them. Use some ash from the fire if you can or know someone can save you some you will never have problems with them as they can't breathe in it and make sure your chucks can bathe. I have a setup where one part of there run is always covered and dug over so they can dust bath in there anytime they wish. These things are great for avoiding giving places for mites to naturally lay eggs but there still way over priced for how much they hold. I bought a shed for £20 second hand treated it for a £10 and use the above advice my chickens may get the odd mite in hot dry periods but they don't last long and easily are treatable.Use Diatomaceous Earth instead of the store bought stuff most of it contains crappy chemicals that are over priced and under perform. You can also use the earth in your feed mix to get rid of any parasites within your chucks too.
