What does it say on the bottle, Twitch? Does it give any instructions on how much to add to a certain amount of water?

does not say anything about chooks, it says can use for dogs cats and red mites ( birds )

15ml malaban wash with 1L of water. remove birds, then spray aviaries and lofts thoughly including nesting boxes, litter and walls. return birds when aviaries etc are dry. As total control of pests requires appropriate treatment of both the animal and its envirolment also trent birds with a suit5able registered insecticide.

pretty hard to read and understand what it says this is the best I could do.

So it's saying to use the Malaban as a spray for the coop, not as a dip for the chooks.

Have you noticed lice or mites on your chooks? If not you should be ok to just clean out and spray the coop.

Malaban is pretty toxic. I suggest that you spray the coops as per the directions and use a powder or a permethrin dip for the chooks.

Permethrin is another kind of insecticide that is much safer to use. You mix it up with water. You can dip the birds into it or just spray them with it. You can also spray the coop with it.

Here is a thread about using permethrin with chickens, as a spray and as a dip: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=7985544

I use malaban, but only for the coop and ground. I have never used it on birds (though you can) - there are safer options (safer for the chooks and safer for you)

If it's a fine sand then I wouldn't imagine it being a problem.

If it's a course gritty sand that they are also consuming to pack their crops with grit then I would try and limit the amount of overspray or consider covering it while spraying.
