    umm Happy Birthday! ?

    No, no, no. You found her now for a reason, give her a good look over. If she has mites or lice, you just bought the rest of your flock more time. 30's are AWESOME, you are mature enough not to make teenaged mistakes and yet, have the strength of body and mind to move mountains. Celebrate moving into your 30s!!

    LOL! I think everyone of us have had a burn the coop down day (or week). I've had at least 3 this year. You'll figure it out, and it will get better. I'd help you, but I'm learning as I go. I personally want to get my hands on some pour on Ivermectin. I know it's controversial, but from what I've read it helps with a lot of different worms, mites, lice etc. I can't find the right one though.[​IMG]

    It sounds like a resp issue. I use denegard, but you have to get that online and it is spendy. Some people use Tylan 200 effectively.

    Don't give up. I went through a lot with my silkies this summer and was so over it. But I am glad I didn't give up.
