Permethrin 10 and Baby Chicks Question

Discussion in 'Raising Baby Chicks' started by Erin~TheChickenLover, Jun 3, 2012.

  1. I sprayed all of our adult birds, the pens, and the coops with Permethrin 10 yesterday to keep away lice and mites that the squirrels always spread to my chickens. I want to know, is it okay to put my 7 baby chicks that range from 1 week old to 2 weeks outside in their pen after I sprayed it yesterday? Will the Permethrin 10 hurt them? They are little bantams. If it's not okay I can just keep them in their indoor pens but it's a nice day and they prefer being outside. Thanks in advance for any advice. [​IMG]

    One to two week olds are still pretty fragile. Don't know that I would put them in there yet. That's really just my opinion as I've never used that product. Hopefully someone more experienced will jump in and answer for you.
