    I am going to treat this weekend, am prepared to treat the flock, run and coop... I went way overboard and bought just about everything I could order online... So which is best? And how do I do it??

    I have Frontline Spray, DE, Prozap Garden & Poultry Dust, and Ivermectin, (should I worm them too???)

    Good grief!! Haha I guess I treat the birds, clean the coop, treat the bedding and dust the run???

    Do I re-treat? and if I retreat is the egg withdrawal time from the 2nd retreat??

    This seemed like an easy idea, now I'm freaking out!! Haha

    And... If I should worm now too, I also have some safeguard paste??

    Food grade DE (diatomaceous earth). You can find it at most feed stores. It can be sprinkled on their food or in their water for internal parasites and sprinkled on their bedding to help absorb moisture and kill external parasites like fleas and lice. Also helps keep other insects out of the coop.
