I’m wondering if permethrin 10 is safe for 2 week old chicks? I was treating for mites when my two broodies hatched and I’ve waited to spray again because they are in a separate pen in the coop all together for integration purposes but the mites are coming back like crazy on the eggs. I need to spray a again but can I safely spray them too? TIA

Do you have 2 cages or small coops where you can put the broodies while you change nesting material and then spray the main coop? That way, the little chickies wouldn't be exposed to the permethrin. Permethrin is safe for the adult birds, but 2-week-old chicks are still pretty fragile.
