    Stupid question as follows:

    Do I treat my chickens routinely for various skin pests or do I inspect them to identify said pests and then treat?

    I am relatively new to this and am not sure what I am looking for.

    Thanks!

    I don't treat the chickens unless they have a problem. Until then, I just provide good dust baths and check them occasionally.

    How do I provide a dust bath?
