So I had 4 Buff Orp cockerels and got rid of them in less than 24 hours on Craigslist...wow that's a new record. Lucky lady who took them lives on a 20 acre ranch and she says she can have all the chickens she wants...that would be very dangerous for me lol
I'm sure it's possible that I missed areas, my coop is kinda hard to get into/maneuver around. The way it's built I'm not sure even paint would be able to get in all the hidden areas. Sigh. A plastic coop is sounding good right now. No wood for mites to hide in.
Is it possible to get rid of mites for good? I treated all of my coops (sprayed the heck out of them) and my chickens with the Elector PSP and I still got a mite on me after picking up one of my chickens. I am really grossed out by the bug thing. Please advise
It was an emergency situation just a small amount on a Q-tip. Poor baby was being eaten alive. I got my Elector on this website: valleyvet.com it's expensive but it's worth it to me not to get crawly things on my arms ****shudder****
Thank you Ron. I actually did order Elector PSP after researching mites. Ewwww. I think the mites must be the red variety as there aren't large build ups of them on the chickens. But the ones I do find crawling on me aren't red, perhaps they're newly hatched ones. I treated a poor Serama chick...
