Ok I'm almost positive I have red mites in my coup I have lost 2 chickens in 4 days and I don't want to lose anymore. The ones that died got really lethargic and just laid down and died. One was 2 years old and the other only 1 year old. One if them had white feathers and I saw tons of really tiny red and black specks moving around mostly under the wing and around the beak. So I went and bought a insecticide that my local co-op suggested to kill the little critters. It is called pen and poultry chicken and roost insecticide spray by Martin's. My question is is this going to work? Can I still eat the eggs? If I can't eat them how long should I wait? I'm going to try this Friday when it Will be warm enough(I live in minnesota) to kick my chickens outside to let the coup air out but will that be long enough. It said not to get it on your skin and to wash your cloths after use. Then it says to spray on chickens directly is that a good idea? Any info would help greatly. I just want to deal with this in the right most effective way before I lose Any more chickens.
