Okay, last year, I had trouble with mites. There wasn't mites over the winter, and my chickens seemed fine. Now that spring has come in full force, there are more feathers caked in mite droppings, and I see mites crawling around my birds vents. Last time I used some type of mite powder I found at TSC, but now, I couldn't that particular powder. Instead, I found a type of spray at Petsmart, when I was picking up mealworms, and rabbit hay. Now my question: has anyone ever used Scalex Mite and Lice spray for Birds? Is it for cage birds? Is it safe for chickens? Spraying the chickens was easier than trying to powder them or 'shake-and-bake' them in a bag. It seems effective- I did a test on one of their mite-infested feathers, and I think most of the mites died. I'm still going to reapply in about 10 days, but I just wanted to know if anyone else had used it.
