I checked my girls for mites the last couple days, because someone I know had them on her chickens. Today I saw one little brown/red thing scatter from the vent area when I separated the feathers on my Welsummer, so I'm going to dust the girls and clean out the coop. Can I mix the permethrin dust with water to spray the wood hutches? If so what should the concentration be? Or does Oxine work better? Fortunately for me, my coop is chainlink with tarps. I'll still have to remove bedding, but I was planning on mucking it out soon anyway. My coop has a dirt floor, which may make it difficult to get every last litte bit of shavings. Should I spray that down also, and if so, with what? Everyone says clean out the coop, but what about the run/outside? I recently brought in some wood ashes for their dust bathing area, and I just added some DE. Can I add some of the permethrin dust to it? As I've only seen one on one bird, I'm hoping to catch it early before major infestation sets in. No red vents, feather yuck, pale combs or other signs on anyone yet. They all look very healthy and are laying up a storm! Thanks.
