I used to love chickens, but these mites are making me want to give up. I moved this hen inside when it was zero degrees, shortly after, mites were everywhere. I have yet to see any in my flock with them, although I started dusting today, with Sevin, dusted the birds too, the feed mill sold me the stuff, said it is for poultry and is safe on them, it has the exact ingredient as Sevin. The mom here has so many (the one in my house), I am sick. Most aren't getting our, they are sticking to duct tape I used to "trap" them. Now I probably killed the chicks as I dusted mom too, ready to hatch in a few days. Then I read on here this may not be safe at all. I'd love to just stick the mom back in the coop, but, I hate to until I can get control of these, or I'll have a huge mess out there. We wanted to sell a few of our silkies and I'm thinking we are stuck with this for life. I'm ready to cry, as I just don't know what to do. I've hid this from my husband, or he would die if he knew she had mites in here. Will they go away when she is put outside. Again, makes me so sick. This is our first mite issue and I just hope I can make it through it. I love chickens and want a life with them, but not sure we'll overcome this. Please help!!!!!
