Two questions- I have my chicks in the basement- in a finished computer room. I have brought them outdoors 3 times the last few days that it has been nice in a makeshift run for now since the coop is not ready just for a few hrs to enjoy the weather. I feel itchy everytime I come into the computer room, but this started before I brought them out. Is it just me being sensitive to the chicken air that seems to acquire when the door is closed? Could it be more like mites or something? How does a chicken aquire mites, lice etc? Most importantly DO mites infect your house????? I did a google on mites and all sorts of things pop up on huge mite infestations that people have mites all over them, the house, etc and can't get rid of them- I am freaked out! The coop that I am cleaning out and getting ready- is all wood- should I paint it with something to help prevent kill anything that may be there? Put laminate? Leave as is? The house is 17 yrs old I'm assuming the coop is probaly about 10 yrs old maybe? They had rabbits and chickens in it. I'm going to pressure wash it, bleach it then what? I have bugs, parasites, such Help!
