I have a mite infestation and am going to treat the coop, run and hens with Seven dust. I've only had hens for four weeks and don't really know what I'm doing. They are not free range, and live in a run attached to a coop. When I transferred them into the run, I just placed the box that they were transported in into the run. So I have never handled one of the hens before, and I have no idea how to do this in order to treat for the mites. These are (illegal) urban chickens and we do not have a fenced in yard, so my biggest fear is that one will get loose and start roaming the neighborhood. I would very much appreciate if someone could explain in detail how exactly I go about picking up a chicken, as well as holding the chicken and rubbing seven dust all over them, without getting pecked or ending up with a runaway chicken. My husband will be assisting me (reluctantly, I'm sure). Thanks in advance for the help!
