    I looked at it on Amazon. Of the few reviews, most say it is effective. However, I didn't see any reviews involving chickens.
    Essentria IC3 Concentrate, 32oz Quart makes 8 gallons


    Of the negative reviews (3 out of 9):

    "The oils can stain surfaces and may irritate skin or eyes".
    "As the directions note, the product has a strong peppermint smell. People and pets should avoid the treated space for a few hours after application. The oils can stain surfaces, and may irritate skin or eyes. (We had no trouble, but some people and animals are more sensitive to aromatic oils.)"
