Hey all, After nearly loosing a 12 week old chick to who knows what, I figured out she has lice. I'm not sure if this is what had her so far gone since she started to improve before I realized she had horrible creepy crawlies. She appears to be on the mend. BUT I have a major lice and mite problem (I dusted her right away with DE). I am using the coconut oil and DE solution on my 8 other girls that many have suggested simply because that is what I have on hand and also I prefer not to use insecticides. However, I'm concered I may have a real mite problem that needs deep cleaning with seven. I found some spray in the garage and it is for veggies and reads: carbaryl .126%. Can I and should I spray both coops down with this and let them dry before bed? Does bleach work and can that be used instead? Or should I go out and get a poultry spray and would that be better/safer. We do eat our eggs, do not eat our chickens and I have three small children to consider. I don't want them to be paranoid about bugs (as I want to be) at all so I want them involved in the process unless we are using something like seven... I've already started the one chick on poultry nutrient drench and should I start the others on it as well? Everyone else seems to feel fine... Thanks so much for all of your insight!
