About 24 hours ago I treated all of my silkies with Ivomec from the feed store (Bantam doses). I have been battling mites for almost a year now. Someone brought an infested bird to the fair show last year and I'm just fed up with these bugs. I dusted the coop, dusted birds countless times, and probably dusted myself while I was at it. Now these mites seem to be immune to the poultry dust. So I did some research and found some Ivomec at the feed store. Its not the eprinex, which is what I originally wanted, but all online stores charge an arm and a leg to ship to Alaska. I just checked my white silkies and I am happy to say that it is working The only bug I saw was in the roos feathers and I didn't find any on the skin, however, my silkies skin is so dry (Dandruffy?) that its almost impossible to see down to the skin on two of my hens. Since I just treated them 24 hours ago would I ruin the treatment if I gave them all a bath with baby soap and scrubbed that dry skin off? If someone could give an answer quickly that would be much appreciated. Also, do I need to dose them again in a certain number of days to kill any remaining eggs that might of hatched? We never eat the silkie eggs so there is no worry about egg withdrawal time for us. Thanks!
