My chickens have dry fowl pox.. and some of my fancy pigeons have pigeon pox.
In the coop at night there are so many mosquitoes.. even biting me... I can hear them buzzing everywhere.
Its become such a problem because our neighbour farmer friend has created a buffalo wallow right over the fence next to my coop!!!!!
The poor birds are uncomfortable at night fidgeting because of the mosquitos biting them.
The coop and run are so big and lots of wire mesh.... It will be impossible to 100 percent mosquito net proof the thing.. although I am going to try.
Until I can fix It up can I use some spray mosquito repellant?
I have some natural mosquito spray made from lemon grass and plant oils which I use on myself.
Its safe for human skin.. can I spray it on my birds or on the roosts and nesting boxes? Or will the fumes be bad for their breathing?
