OK...short of it...I came home for the Ohio Nationals with a nearly perfect pair of white Bantam Cochins. As luck would have it, they are now infested with mites. I dusted them two days ago with my standby garden and poultry dust that did wonders on a lice issue I had a while back, but these mites seem imune to it...even though the package clearly states it will kill Norther Fowl Mites. So...now what? These are SQ birds, and I've already trimmed the hens vent feathers thinking it was a poo mess she had, but turns out it was from the mites. These guys have soo much fluff, that even a good slathering of the dust don't seem to be helping...what are some other options? Side note...they are penned in a basement room which harbors ideal temperatures for these critters year round, and are directly next to my Serama flock that has no signs what so ever of the mites being on them. Not sure if the mites came with the birds, or if someting I had in that pen left them behind. Seems odd that my Serama are uneffected by it, but the Cochins are covered. Anyway...back to the help part...if you have an tips, please let me know. I would prefer not to give the roo a trip as he is set to show in July! Thanks in advance!
