Mites-- chickens, ducks, & goose

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've noticed mites on my hens. Most just had a few but one girl was pretty infested. I'll be treating them with ivermectine and disinfecting the coop this weekend.
My concern is that I have a goose and two muscovy that share the coop. I've not checked the webbies for mites, but I'm assuming they also have them.
Can geese and ducks be treated like the hens with ivermectine?
Treatment advice given by chicken rancher.
IverMax cattle pour-on:
2 drops on skin at back of neck
repeat in 10 days
Good? Bad?
Suggestions?

There are some folks over on the Duck Forum who have experience with Ivermectin and treating for mites - I suggest you post over there.

I have used it every year for the past 8 years on my flock- chickens and waterfowl.  They are still kicking.
