    will chicks hatched from infected chickens have the disease that their parents are carriers of,they have recovered from ( crusty eyes, coughing, drooling) . if the infected chicken are disposed of will the disease stay in the coop only to reinfect new chickens, if so how can you disinfect the coop and yard.

    What disease? Any given pathogen has its own unique survivability and circumstances under which it can be passed from bird to bird, bird to surface to bird, etc.
