    is there any shampoo for chickens with mites, or any shampoo that you can use on chickens for animals?
    thanks

    No mite shampoo that I know of, but you can use sevin dust on them to get rid of the mites.

    Ashes from the cook stove work pretty well. Just put them where the hens take their dust baths. For leg mites, spray their legs with WD 40 or rub them down with vaseline or better Vicks.

    I try to avoid pesticides. Stick the the tried and true methods.
