    Meh. I check the birds for mites and lice every-so-often. I found some on 'pretty boy'

    one of our sweetest, prettiest roos. [​IMG] went and got some seven dust. Gonna dust him,

    the pens, and all the rest of the birds. Now, I've always read you dust everything/everyone

    for a couple weeks, cause it doesn't kill the eggs. How many weeks?

    Takes the eggs 10 days to hatch. Hopefully you will only have to do it twice.
