When can I bathe?

I have been having some trouble with lice off and on. I have dusted with sevins twice in two weeks and the problem seems to have been minimized.

Come nice weather here in NE PA, I want to get out and not only disinfect the coop well, but also put all the chickies through a Adams flea and tick soak. What does the temp need to be outside so that they don't get a chill. I have about 35 to do and would like to get them all done at once and repeat two weeks later to hopefully knock this problem out.

Thanks for any advice!

Unless it's really warm, I wouldn't recommend bathing them outside. If you need to bathe them in winter, I would suggest using an inside sink or bathtub and blow-drying them afterwards so they don't get chilled.
