    I researched and saw so many idea's on how to get rid of them. I have 2 that have mites. They are in a seperate coop. I will be going tomorrow to get medicine. But what do I use? And how do I use it? My poor rooster and hen. I feel so bad for them. [​IMG] It makes me sick for them to have this. I feel like a bad chicken mom. [​IMG]

    I bought something called Poultry Protector when I found mites on one hen. I went into the coop at night and treated each bird by spraying the PP under each wing and across their vent area. I also sprayed the corners and crevices of the coop real well with it. Never had another problem.

    Don't feel bad. The wild birds bring the mites in.
