    1. If the weather is dry, put some where they dust-bathe.

    2. Put some in a sock that's suspended next to the coop doorway or nesting box. They'll brush against it every day.

    3. Dust the coop & roosts.

    Good sock idea!

    I already tried to dust the area where they dust bathe (in my garden). They moved to a different spot [​IMG]
