I just had a quick question. My hens that I have now, I acquired from my neighbors when they decided they didn't want them anymore and nearly starved them to death till they found my ducks and the food I was putting down for them. They have mites and/or lice, and I'm trying to get them good with Diatomaceous Earth for that. But, they look like they might have scaly leg mites too. I can't be sure. Would treating them for that by wrapping their legs with gauze soaked with neosporin and vet wrap cause any harm if they don't have them? Even better, is there anything I can give them for parasites that kills mites, lice, scaly leg mites - pretty much everything at once? It wouldn't hurt if it killed worms, too. I have no idea what these guys used to be exposed to or might have, and I don't want them giving my ducks anything or giving anything to the chicks I have inside when I put them in together.
