My 10 pet chickens have mites and/or lice. What can I do?
Free range chickens. I have treated the coop - 7 dust and diatomaceous earth on dirt floor, also treated roosts etc. I have gone around the farm sprinkling 7 dust in their dust bowls.
I have treated the 2 worst hens with 7 dust directly on their backs and triple antibiotic ointment rubbed on the featherless areas - back and sides of birds. Both hens have some featherless areas with red skin and white skin patches. I can't see any lice or mites.
