I swear i have like 8 bug bites on me possibly caused by mites. I cant see the little suckers on my silkies but a couple of times i have seen this little black thing crawling on my arms after holding one. My parents bought this spray that is supposeidly organic. I think its just orange oil. well im not sure its killing them. Im not even sure what we are trying to kill. Ugh im just so fed up with being itchy. How do i treat silkies for mites? they are just so fluffy that i feel like spraying them or oiling them up wont work *sigh*. Oh and the feed store i go to sucks. I swear they dont know what they are talking about. We go there looking for chicken food and they told us to get scratch for my egg laying chickens. I told the person helping us that scratch is like candy to chickens but she was so adamant in saying that that was the food to feed them. She was the one that suggested the orange oil to kill the mites as well. Will the orange spray work on the chickens? if not is there anything i can do in the meantime while i look for a new feed store that knows what they are talking about?
