    Rough day here at shady acre and a half. Got to do a bumblefoot surgery tomorrow on one hen, dust everybody and fumigate the coop. Get some vet rx up the nose of that hen with the eye issue. Thinking about doing some pour on ivermectin for all the chickies. What you guys think- ivermec or just sevin dust?

    You stated that you were going to dust everybody and fumigate the coop. Then stated thinking about using ivermectin pour on for all the chickies. I dont recommend using both. You'd be better off using sevin dust on your birds and dusting the coop. Redust your birds and coop again in 7-10 days.
    I can relate, I've had a few rough days like you're going through as well.

    Thanks for the input. I think you are right, go with the sevin for now to get it gone birds and coop. Its just gonna be a long day lol. My hubby comes home tomorrow evening I already have him roped in as my surgical assistant. These mites/bumblefoot came in on some birds I just purchased. Kinda to be expected I suppose.
