In the Brooder
- Nov 5, 2012
Hi everyone. I have 3 Serama chicks that just hatched last night and they have northern red mites. I have sprayed the hen with Poultry Protector but it says not to us on chicks less than 10 days old. What can I do???? I brought them inside to a brooder because two other chicks that hatched yesterday were dead this morning due to the hen not keeping them warm enough during the night. I put white paper towels on the bottom of the brooder and can see the mites on the paper when the chicks move. I am killing the mites I see with my finger nail (this is so gross) but don't know what is safe to use on such tiny chicks. HELP! Any advice is so appreciated. Thanks.
