    I've dusted 3x now with poultry dust containing 0.25% permethrin with NO luck.[​IMG] Really, no change what so ever. Dusted once then 7 days later. I looked at all of the hens and the roo and they were just as infested as ever three days later.I've read on post to try adams flea spray for an instant kill on the birds then spay the coop with liquid seven. Can we still eat the eggs or do we need to wait a period after treatment.[​IMG] I'm about to pull my hair out over this.

    well the eggs will not be tainted from this
    there should not be any thing wrong with them
    but if in doubt just wait a couple days and then eat them

    hopefully you put one of your fingers over the vent so that the adams flea off did not go into the vent

    the mites and lice take a lot of blood out of the hens so they will be better
