    Hi fellow chickenistas! My house really needs to be tented for termites. The chickens (the girls) coop is about 25 feet away from the house and off to the side. Prevailing wind blows past the house and towards the coop. I have concerns about the fumigant leaking in their direction and moving them is not possible.Does anyone have thoughts, ideas, even wild conjecture on this subject or am I being a little too concerned? Thanks! Steve in LA

    As sensitive as chickens respiratory systems are, I would personally be really concerned and would try to get the birds out of there. Especially when they take down the tarps and aerate the house. How many hens do you have? Can you keep them in dog crates or something during the time it will take them to fumigate the house?
