Permethrin Amount for Chicks?

Hi, I have some chicks moving outside and I’ve seen a couple mites moving about on a new pen I have for them. Mites aren’t an issue anymore but they can easily be an issue with these chicks.

I bought Permethrin concentrate and I’m not sure if the recommended amount is safe for chicks or just adult birds. Instructions don’t mention chicks.

Anyone use Permethrin on chicks before? Same dilution amount as labeled?

I have used it on chicks. The 1/2 ounce per bird probably means 1/2 ounce per 5 pound chicken. For chicks, just spray a small amount on their vent, under each wing, both legs, and maybe a little on their neck too. Make sure they have a heat lamp to dry off under. If no heat lamp, use permethrin powder instead.
