    After treating for mites can you introduce new chickens to the flock? I finally treated the guineas and other two that I purcahced about 3 weeks ago. I want to move their pen into the coop so everyone can get use to eachother. How long do I need to wait to do this?

    What did you treat them with? Did you retreat every 7 days for 3 times?

    Quote:I just treated them tonight. I also treated my guys in the coop while everyone was roosting. Everyone in the coop is good but I figured what the heck I ought this stuff might as well figured it cant hurt. Anyhow I purchaced from TSC Gardstar Garden & poultry Dust with Permethrin. It doesnt say anything about retreating but it also doesnt say about introuducing.
