Do I need to take any other precautions before building the inside and fenced in outside area?

About 4 years ago I rescued and rehabbed two goats for about 6months before rehoming them. My goat barn I built has sat unused since then. I want to convert it into a chicken coup… I plan on cleaning with bleach and water before reflooring it.  Is the dirt safe for the chickens? Or do I need to do something with the ground? Other things I have not thought of???

Please leave a comment below, and let me know what you think!

Really, bleaching and sanitizing Why ??? Goats are very clean animals. We have airways raised ours together. I find interesting you feel such a need. In fact l would be more fearful of the chickens causing problems for the goats.

I would sprinkle DE around just to make sure there are no mites around. So much easier to do it at the beginning rather than finding them after you have chickens in there
