    We have chickens, ducks, turkeys, guineas, and a peacock. The chickens have mites, I can't see mites on anybody else but they all are in one shed.
    So I know the eprinex dosage for chickens is .5cc for standard fowl. Does anyone know what the dosage would be for ducks, turkeys, guineas, and a peacock?
    The ducks weigh between 4-6lbs, guineas are probably 3-4lbs, turkeys 15-20lbs, and peacock I don't know she's probably around 12lbs.
    I plan on going out after everyone is roosting tonight and dosing them.
    Thanks for the help!

    I have never used eprinex, but I have had a similar problem recently. My chickens had lice. After seeking help on BYC, I was told to use permethrin dust. I found it on amazon for $12.00 and it killed the lice just a few minutes after dusting them. It says it works on mites as well. I believe it is called prozap garden and poultry dust.

    I think the dose is about 0.05 ml per pound, though giving twice that is *probably* safe. If it's not too cold where you are, treating them and their coop with permethrin spray might be a better idea (zero day egg withdrawal). If it's too cold, spray coop and use permethrin dust on the birds.

    Your peahen, she might weigh 9 pounds if she's really big and fat.[​IMG] Most mature peahens weigh ~7-9 pounds.
