    Just moved to Missouri with my family to live on my mother and step fathers land. theyve already broken so many rules with there flock and now they have fleas and mights and havent been laying eggs for about four months. whats my best course of action tomarrow. ive always kept great chickens and know how to do that. but some of these chickens wont even walk around they just stand there

    no takers, so i guess ill sterilize the coup, dust the heck out of it. dust all 40 birds, give them a dusting area and hope for the best
    .and take over.

    Check on here for previous postings, I have read post about using ivermectin drench to put on the chickens back, and dusting the the birds and coop with sevin dust, or poultry powder.

    Gotta repeat every 7 days until bugs gone to get the hatching eggs if using poultry dust.
