Scaly leg mites, moving uninfected birds to infected coop, question

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I have 2 coops

 

1.) Has new spring chickens NOT infected!

2.) HAD old chickens that had SLM disease on the legs, gone (given away to chicken dude)

 

I want to move the NEW chics to the larger coop that used to house the infected older birds.

 

 

What do I have to do to move the uninfected new birds to the new coop that used to house  infected birds? Is if safe to move them or do I need to decontaminate the coop?

 

If so how do I do that so that the SLM's dont jump to the new birds?

 

Can I just dust it with 7 or do more things need to be done? What about the run and everywhere else?

 

 

 

Thanks

Last year I had one bird with SLMs and it never spread to the other 5. They stayed in the same coop the entire time I treated the infected bird. Don't know if I was just lucky or if it's hard to transfer to other birds.

Also, I was told to never use straw as nesting material because it is hollow and a breeding ground for mites. I use pine shavings.
