  4. Hello I am new to having chickens and this site, I do not have an eglu but a wooden hen house and run. I purchased 6 girls all different varieties and they arrived from Shropshire farm on Monday, not the best time as we had very bad weather with the tail end of hurricane up here in the North. I have no idea what I am doing so I could do with advice and help on what I should be doing, my main worry is how to clean their house and what to use. The girls on soil but wondering if I need to clean it and again how and what to use. I'm very excited and look forward to making new friends. Mark

(1 white bason, 1 beechwood blue, 1 speckledy, 1 Sussex Ranger and 2 commercial browns) I just wonder what I should be doing on a Dailey basis and some advice really. I have a wooden house and up run attached. I brought 3kg water and feeder , feeding girls laying pellets and corn along with veggies and apples from my allotment. Just wondering should I be cutting the s"Ooops, word censored!"s up and if so how big roughly and do I need to do anything with them? Thanks
