    Help! I have 6 week old chickens.. first time chicken owner so unsure of certain things..
    I have 1 white leghorn, 2 black australorps and 3 isa browns...

    I have recently had a problem with sneezing and snotty noses, I have treated all my chickens with a general antibiotic.. AmoxyV B or something like that.. Seemed to help.. But as of a few days ago, 2 isa browns are sneezing quite badly... Is there anything I can do??

    They also came with mites :|
    Is there a product I can use to kill mites on 6 week old chickens? I have been using DE for a few weeks and doesn't help!

    Thanks :)
