MITES!!!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Discovered that one of my broody hens has mites when I checked the eggs under her.  What is the best way to treat all of the birds and the coop?  I am planning on completely cleaning out the coop, treating the coop and the birds, and then replacing the bedding.  Hopefully before the middle of next week because we have chicks on the way!  Thoughts?  It needs to be an easy treatment.  My birds are not tame because we don't handle them unless absolutely necessary.  I work overnights and don't have time in the evenings after the birds are in the coop to repeat treatments on any kind of a regular basis.  We have 50 birds.  TY!

Also - best place to buy?  I read about Elector PSP and thought about trying it, but can't find it reasonably priced anywhere :(

Amazon has it @ $159.75 for the 8 oz. bottle with free shipping to boot! It says to mix 2 oz. in 10 gallons water for 5,000 to 10,000 square feet of coverage. With you having 50 birds, it does not seem expensive.

 

I did not know about this product. I like that there is no withdrawal period for eggs.

If you buy it, let us know how this works PLEASE!
