No.

 

Feather fixer is a food formulation that is sold to aid in growing new feathers.  No new feathers are ever grown unless the old feather or feather shaft is either manually removed or falls out naturally.

I know this is an old thread, and it may be that feather fixer is a different formula than the origianl -- because it used to say it got rid of mites.   Seems that the current advertising doesn't mention mites or having a miticide..... 

 

Just bought a small sized bag at TSC to assist one of my chickens with his molt -- and wondered about the mite medication in it.  Anyone have any recent news?

 

ETA Perhaps found my own answer here on BYC -- maybe there is a formula of feather fixer with "mite-fighter" and one without?  anyone know?
