My new pullet has Mites/Lice?! Newbie owner

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I just drove hours to pick up a 5mo olive egger pullet and found the flock has mites/lice.
I got one anyways because from what understand they are easy to treat?

Ihave a flock of 4 EEs that i will be keeping Faarrrr away fromher untill shes trwated.

Ive been looking online and finding tons of ways to prevent it...


But how do i treat it?!



They are white teeny circle deposits located just around her chin/neck area. They're all stuck to the base/lower areas of the feathers.

Several ways. I use 5% Sevin dust. Make sure you get it down to the skin, especially under the wings, the underside and around the vent. Retreat in 7-10 days. I've also used pour on Ivermectin.

 

Here's a good read.
