One rir, 2 Delaware, 2 white leghorn. They r battling mites. sad.png all I have is fgDE. And mixed it with sand and bathing them in it. I've heard wood ash is best. Wish I had that.

Yes wood ash can keep them at bay but won't kill them. Something like sevin dust or louse powder works well to actually kill them. You can also use ivermectin spot on too.

Here is an article on lice and mites that's very helpful ~ http://www.backyardchickens.com/a/mites-lice-treatment-and-prevention

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
