    I would use bleach also yoou can also follow up with vinegar, and or Isolpropyl Alcohol. The Vinegar rinse is the cheaper option.

    Hi Mike,

    Since you have had this outbreak, I would get in touch with the state veterinarian's office, let them know what you lost birds from, and then ask for their suggestions on how to disinfect and with what products. Especially ask if you need to wait for a given amount of time before putting new birds on your premises. Remember, the soil on which your birds were kept may have bacteria on it.

    You should be able to google your state vet contact information.

    Good luck!
