    Mites again...

    I bought the concentrate and then mixed it myself following the guidelines on the bottle, and used it for spraying the coop and everything down. I bought the premixed for spraying my birds and nesting boxes, especially since I have 2 broody hens. I have a couple more questions. I have some...

    Mites again...

    After the first infestation of mites, I surrounded the entire pen with bird netting. Sides and all. I treated them for 3 weeks, exactly 7 days apart as I did it every thursday. The last week, it had rained thursday so I did it on friday of that week. I cleaned out their coop and sprayed all the...

    Mites again...

    Hello The beginning of August I had a post about mites. I was given advice on what to use and how to use it. I thought my mite issue was solved, but today I decided to inspect one of my hens. The mites are back. I used permethrin 10 to treat them before. But I was also wondering about ivermectin...

    Mites

    Okay! So last week I used the powder on my chickens, but I wanna try the liquid on them this time. I think I figured out the ratio needed, but I want to double check. The bottle I have is 32fl oz. The instructions say... Dilution Rate (parts product to parts water) 1:200 Then it gives me some...

    Mites

    I read that it doesn't kill the eggs, so should I do weekly treatments until they are all gone? Or since I leave soon, should I spray them down like twice a week? 3 times? I leave the 20th and won't be back until the 27th. During that week could the mites come back in full force?? I plan on...

    Mites

    I read about that, but the thing is... I don't have that sort of money and I believe I have to ship it from out of the country? Either way, I want to make sure I can treat them as much as I can before I leave for vacation later in August. Permethrin 10 is available now at TSC. Do you think I can...

    Mites

    Hello! Yesterday I noticed poopy feathers around one of my hens vents. This is the first time it has happened to her and since she does not have a fluffy butt, I figured to check on it. Glad I did! I found mites! Now I have been reading through numerous things and came to the conclusion that...

    Questionable Egg

    I get rough eggs that are almost a circle often. I thought it was just how one of my hens laid eggs? Is that not normal? Though I also don't think they have that weird coloring in mine. Ill have to crack one open to check! 😅

    Rooster and hens

    So I wasn't sure where to post this but I have a hefty rooster. By hefty I mean hes twice the size of my americana hens which are about 5lbs. My biggest hens are my 2 brahmas and my 1 barred rock. I have 2 pullets and 9 laying hens and he seems hefty even for them. Though I noticed some of my...

    Straw chicken run

    Hello again! First off, im on mobile so sorry for any weird formatting that may happen. So this last winter was my first winter having chickens. I put down straw in their uncovered run so they had something dry to step on instead of constantly walking through snow. I thought it would all...

    The ‘I’ve Got The COVID Shot Club’!

    So I think covid is a thing, just like how the flu is a thing. What I think should have happened from the start is instead of shutting down and mandating 'masks' (which don't help anyways imo), everything should have remained opened, full capacity and OPTIONAL masks. The flu still kills more...
