    I have found tiny black mites on my chicken. I am going to treat all of my birds for mites, I want to use a pour on like Ivermectin. What do I need to know? I have polish, quail and turkey, what would be the dosages? I have read that the polish should get about 4 drops

    You need to know that the inside of the hen house(s,) roosts and nests need to be treated for mites as well. I recommend sevin dust.

    Just remember that ivermectin does not treat feather lice.

    Lice are usually very light brown or straw colored, so black is probably mites. [​IMG]

    After you decide on using Ivermectin, post here when you still see mites on your birds, and I'll tell you what really works.
