Control pests.

Pests are those creatures like wild birds, rats, mice, and flies that may hang around poultry housing. Wild birds like starlings and sparrows or wild geese or ducks can carry many diseases to your chickens, as do rats and mice.

Controlling pests means keeping the coop clean, storing feed so that pests can’t access it, putting out poison bait or traps when you notice signs of pests, and having secure housing that limits pests’ access.
