Well, i usually keep a close eye, but after the freezing temps i havent been one to stay out long. And as a result havent checked for mites. Well, guess what i have a high to moderate infestation! i used Sevin on every bird, and am cleaning EVERYTHING tomorrow. It makes me so mad, i dont check them for 2.5-3 weeks and look what happens! Im soo mad at myself, and then i read that they come with the cold so i shoud be watching more in the cold. Was using sevin enough? I want to make sure i get the bulk of them. i was planning on setting eggs under a broody on thursday (who now as mites), but now i dont know, and my rooster had clumped feathers so who knows how the fertility is. What do you all think. I am just so mad at myself, i never let thes happen, but i guess you learn, and remember to check your birds more often in the cold!
