Hi I am new to this site. Need some help treating my birds. I am assuming they have mites. No sign of lice. Was thinking to treat with ivomec orally in their water as I have 250+ birds. Just don't want a long withdrawal period for eggs. Safeguard doesn't do external parasites right? Any other suggestions? Thought about Eprinex but can't find the injectable kind only pour on which isn't for use in drinking water either right?

You can use 7 dust to treat lice but if your talking about leg mites you can smother their legs in Vaseline and that will smother the mites.

No not leg mites. Guessing Northern fowl mite. Something around their heads causing them to shake their heads. Have never been able to find anything on them but I am thinking they are very small.
