I picked up one of my birds today. Shes a new layer as in less than a week she started. She was walking funny. I looked at her skin she has the lice the brown or yellow type not the red mites (thank god) *knock on wood* we have had this problem once before so ill buy frontline. I have to have our branches cut so they cant roost in the tree than i can treat them they have been free ranging in my backyard as there pen is being...slowly redone. So they got it from some wild bird. Anyways my questioj is this. I have at the least 40 birds. If not 50 max. How do i treat the leg mites? Will the frontline work? Or what method do i use. I have permethrin to spray in there pen and d.e. dust. Is there something i can say dose there water with. Or whats the best method? Some arent that bad. Others im not sure as they dont let me too close. As is i will have to dose with frintline at night yet again lol. Whats your method you have used for scaly leg mites?
