I recently adopted a 2 year old white midget male turkey. Today I was dealing with an out of control NFM situation in the coop and decided to check the turkeys, too. All 5 of my turkeys are rescues and at least several years old. 3 of them were abused and very hard to get my hands on when the dusting was going on. My Midget White, Wikkus, is a snuggler, so I was able to rub the permethrin dust all over him (they live with my chickens, so I figure everyone has some mites). So, my questions-- what could all these yellow scabs be on his underside? I saw some mites on him, so I know he has them. These are not the Red Mites, although I wouldn't rule that out, either. 2nd question-- any ideas on how I can treat the turkeys who won't let me grab them? And how does a person effectively cover them with dusting powder? Has anybody had a successful NFM story? I used the .25 permethrin (prozap) today, and I've cleaned and DE'd their coops. Any ideas for stuff to use to clean their coops? I didn't have any liquid pesticide or cleaner, so I just thought I'd start with the DE and prozap and then do some more cleaning over the next few days, before their second dusting. I am very eager to hear of ANY successful mite treatment plans. This is the first time I've ever seen this and I'm a bit freaked out. I know I've been very, very stupid to be rescuing all of these animals and throwing them together. I will be imposing a strict quarantine on the next birds I get. How long is the typical quarantine period?
