In the Brooder
- May 24, 2009
I am approaching the 1 year anniversary of having a flock of 8 (1 roo and 7 hens). I have read about a dust for mites on chickens and applying it, but I've been unable to find out if this should be done on a schedule for mite prevention, such as once or twice a year, once a month, etc. Anyone know? I really don't know what to look for as far as whether or not they have mites. Do all chickens get mites? What should I look for? They look pretty healthy, except for their mating bald patches on their backs. I want to keep them that way.
