    Hello all. I've read about using pour-ons like ivermectin in lice control. But what if you have more than 500 birds? Do you treat them individually? I believe there is an easier way, who knows?

    Hi, I don't know if this will be faster, but you can clean the pen and spread diosanatios Earth around the top and bottom of the shavings. You can also put on flee medicine spray or drops on them. It will act a lot quicker.
