Okay redust in 10 days and now you have to clean out their coop and dust their runs. Take ALL the bedding out of the coop and put some of that "dust" in a sock and bang it into all the cracks ect then refill the coop with bedding. You will probably need to repeat the coop cleaning process in 10 days as well.
