    My mom is needing to clean the run where her old birds are because they need culled, they aren't sick but just old, feeble, so she's concerned that there may be lice or mites or viruses possibly that might infect her new chickens?? Any advice for her? I suggested Sevin dusting the run area? Not sure about viruses, if they would even survive the heat let alone time?

    Thank you for any help :)
