    I had a chicken with pox isolated on my porch. She has recovered and is back with her flock. I have burned the bedding. I bleached the box, feeder, and waterer and put them out in the sun. I also bleached the area of the porch where the box sat.

    Do you think that area and box is clean now? Is it safe for chicks? I have some coming in a week or so. And I'll be hatching eggs soon, so more chickies after that.

    So, will bleach, sun, and fire kill the pox virus?
