my 2 yr old austrolorp and 1 week old silkie baby have feather mites. I went to the vet becauee the baby was shaking his head alot and he said he had fether mites and so does my austrolorp and her feathers are looking gross and tattered. I went to the animal store and asked what I could use and they gave me some permectrin 2 for use on poultry. I mixed some up and sprayed my 2 yr old ace and now shes drying off under a heat lamp and I was just wondering is it safe to use topically or on chicks.
