    Hey everyone. Well I prayed, and I guess the answer was "no" because now my remaining 14 pullet chicks all have come down with infectious sinusitis/CRD.

    I'm gonna have to cull the flock.[​IMG]

    So now, here's the question: How can I sanitize the pen/run/coop/brooding house? Anyone know where I can get this info?

    I'm brokenhearted. I have 7 babies inside who are healthy and will need to move out to the pen in a couple of weeks. Please help. Thank you in advance.

    A garden sprayer with a 10% bleach mix works well. I thought I'd heard that within normally 24-48 hours the infection bugs die without a host. Surely someone who knows more will chime in. Very sorry for your loss, I know its hard.
