post #20011 of 23199
These were only made to house new birds away from all my other birds so I can monitor them to make sure they are not sick. They are not for use other then in winter. Conditioning may have been the wrong word. I've cleaned the legs, treated for lice, and wormed them. After about a month then they will go outside with their pairs or trios. Then the coops will be disinfected with tec trol.
As for air movement. There is two inline fans that are about 120cubic feet per minute. So highly unlikely they have stagnant air

It does not happen very often, but when I do quarantine new birds, the are kept in 4 x 5 pens better than 150 yards from where even my free-range birds go. The being on the ground were pens can be moved around increases odds mother nature will clean up any bugs brought in. I could not clean wood surfaces well enough to kill bugs that that come in under the radar.

Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it.

I would like to live long enough to see my grand kids. We already work with nasty crap like that at work and its effectiveness around wood surfaces is very limited. My chicken containment is based very much on wood.

I believe that's the web page. I use tec trol. I rinse my eggs that I hatch with it, clean out brooders incubators and hatchers with it, it kills just about anything. I have used it without gloves when washing eggs and the worst thing it does is dryes my hands out . I think that open concept of Mother Nature is great but I would still spray the ground between birds. I think that's what I will do for this next season. Thanks.... I'm so thankful for this site and all the knowledgeable people on here. So much easier to learn how to tend to ur bird and what better to do for ur birds thru multiple people it gives u a great deal of options that could work for a given situation

I don't disinfectant much but when I do I use virkon. The ratio is rather low so the tablets don't go far. Usually I'll just use it where a dead animal or something was not as a ongoing thing. When I used incubators I'd spray them with bleach water between hatches but that's about it. I feel the less chemicals the better. Makes for stronger more tolerant birds and I haven't had any outbreaks or issues with sicknesses like respiratory, cocci, mereks, and I welcome pox which my young ones get every summer and haven't lost any to it and they're immune for life. In 3yrs I've had 3 I think natural deaths as in not by clever and I've hatched alot

I do give a round of corid when chicks go to the ground from above ground pens though
