Since we are new to chicken “farming”, we wanted to incorporate our love of essential oils in our poultry care! We knew that Lemon Essential Oil is awesome for its cleaning properties and it is all natural, so we decided to use it to deodorize our chicken coop!
This spray works great, is safe for our chickens, and best of all it is 100% chemical free!
- Using a 16 ounce spray bottle – glass is best – fill 1/2 way with white vinegar
- add 25 drops of Lemon Essential Oil – you can buy it here – swirling the bottle to mix
- Fill the rest of the bottle with water
We clean our nesting boxes, roosting bars, and for general coop clean up !
