    Picking up 8; 4 month old pullets in 3 weeks when new coop will be completed.
    Coop will be treated with DE, Stall-dry and have fresh shavings. Have decided not to start with deep litter method as I want to see whats going on for awhile.
    the pullets are all in the same coop together (at breeder)
    Should I dust them all with Sevin or DE as I unbox them and put them in the new coop?
    How do you dust a bird? Do their eyes need protection?
