Yeah, I know. Something you're like...'what?!' about. Here's what happened. I was bad, and didn't label my spray bottles. My dad has one he puts pure alcohol in (not the rubbing kind), and I have one that I mix Permectrin II in for mites. The cockerel I recently got had a little bit of mites so I sprayed some stuff on him. Thing is, I grabbed the alcohol bottle instead of the Permectrin II bottle! I sprayed his tail, around his vent, wings, and back. I didn't like soak him...about six sprays total. He kinda picked at his feathers a bit, then went up to roost with the females. Um, it won't hurt him, right?
