    Hi Britney - I use a spray product called "Poultry Protector" made by MannaPro. I have found it kills bugs on your chickens instantly and it is non - toxic. However it is not for chicks under 10 days old, I would not spray any baby chicks with anything at this age. Just wait until they are a couple of weeks old and then you will be ok on the chicks. The adults can be sprayed anytime and the coop also. I get the product from my local feed store but you can just google it and find it in your location. It is a very common product.

    If you use the medication and it still persists try taking them to an avian veterinarian.
