Well, it was bound to happen eventually... I found mites on some of the girls today. I don't think it's a massive infestation but I want to nip this in the bud ASAP. I found an article that discusses treating mites: http://www.oznet.ksu.edu/library/lvstk2/mf2387.pdf Just want some reassurance from those who have been there, done that. 1) Is the regular ole 5% Sevin dust you get at the garden section OK to use, or is there some special preparation just for chickens/fowl? 2) My buddy says to dust it around the chicken's vent and under the wings. Does that sound OK? 3) Should I mix some up with dirt and put it where they dust bathe as well, or just treat the chickens directly only? 4) Should I sprinkle it in the nestboxes, coop, etc? On the ground at all? TIA you guys!!
