    Tiny Mites, DE? Ivermectin? Help!

    Great Thanks. Do you add DE to dirt bath? No problems for their respiratory system? So unless I see damage to their skin or feathers, don't give them ivermectin? permethrin is not very effective against house dust mites but maybe these are feather mites, I really don't know. So permethrin is...

    Microscopic Mites on silkie mix chicks.
