    A stray cat that has been visiting the neighborhood died a few hours ago in my next door neighbor's backyard. Is cat mange contagious to chickens? I don't think it was ever in my backyard...but I can't be certain. Since I am setting up a worming schedule for my girls (wazine first then ivomectin later)....will the ivomectin work against it? I don't think the cat suffered from Sarcoptic Mange (heard that is highly contagious to all creatures including us humans) since it wasn't scratching or had bleeding sores.

    So...cat mange contagious to chickens...yea or nea
