Fun­gus help

Q

For the past cou­ple of win­ters I have had a hand­ful of birds de­velop Favus on the face/ neck. I have found imaverol the most ef­fec­tive treat­ment for clear­ing it up and I have not had the is­sue through the sum­mer months, I sus­pect in part due to UV ex­po­sure. My ques­tion is should I be treat­ing the hous­ing to pre­vent re­oc­curence and if so what with?

VR SAYS: If you look on my web­site un­der Biose­cu­rity, you will find dis­in­fec­tant in­for­ma­tion which will tell you the con­cen­tra­tion of Virkon to use to con­trol fun­gus. You can then use this on the wooden walls of your hen hut both in­side and out to re­move the source of the Favus fun­gal in­fec­tion.
