I found a few lice bugs on my rooster and from some internet reading he has mites. Apparently these feathers that I thought were spotted black are actually signs of mites.
Anyway. . .I am going to dust him and the four hens with Sevin powder, but I want to make sure the coop is good to go as well.
How should I clean the coop?? I have DE in there whenever I clean the thing, which is every week(Im talking hose down and scrub) clearly that didnt hold back any bugs! Would a good dusting be enough after I replaces bedding? I know you have to dust again after 10 days to kill eggs, so maybe replace bedding now, spray with Poultry Protector and ten days later do major scrub down????
Please let me know!
