    I just bought 2baby ducks and they have mites on their beaks an eye area what do is do?
     
  4. ICK......Sprinkle Dusting powder in their shavings...Livestock stores will know....Give them a bath with garlic and vinegar and then rinse them off and bath them again in clear water. Do this all in your tub....MIX THE GARLIC AND VINEGAR TOGETHER. Put on duckies and let them run in your tub...Five minutes later rinse them off. Fill up tub deep enough for the duckies to swim and touch the bottom....They will clean off the rest.....

    When my chickens had mites, I got diatemaceous earth and just rubbed it all into their feathers, bedding, and favorite dust spots and now. No more mites :)
     
  6. These are new baby ducklings with new lungs....I have never used that stuff with chickens or ducks as it is hard on their lungs.....

    I used it on my 2 week old babies. No problems whatsoever. All my chickens have been fine and no mites with little work :) It worked great as far as I'm concerned. Didn't know it could have been hard on their lungs but nothing happened. Guess @Tessicab will have to decide if she wants to use it or not.
