Lice and Mites on my Pigeons

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

I was wondering how to rid my pigeons of lice and mites, if I could use the pour-on  that I use on my chickens?  And if so what would the dose be?

Yes. The dose is the same as it is for chickens.

Throw a handful of Borax in their bath water will take care of the bugs

I bathed my pigeon in water with human lice shampoo no lice after that

You  Can Use  Adams Flea  And  Tick   Spray For Dogs On Your  Chickens And Pigeons  Just Spray Under Each Wing And Around The Vent  Feathers.

A good dusting with seven powder will do the trick too.  Worked for me.
