My son's 4-H group is taking their animals to visit a local care facility. Both are bantams and kept in an unheated coop. One has had mites - he's not going if I find any on him that day. First, if I dust him and then bathe him should that get rid of the mites quicker than ivomectrin? Second, if I bathe them I know I have to get them very dry before I put them out. My thought was to bath them just before the visit so they wouldn't get dirty again and would have the time of the visit to dry additionally...... but I don't want to stress them too much. Can anyone give me an idea of what is best for their health? I'm in Northern Michigan where it is currently 27 degrees out.
