Bugs!

Sunday, 5th August 2012 at 1:00 pm Leave a comment

Lice, mites and worms are on the attack.  The chickens have all three, all at the same time.  They’re being treated so should be bug-free in a few days.

We have a plastic shed, this helps with the mites but you can never get rid of them completely.  It’s the first time we’ve had to deal with lice and worms so hopefully the treatments will work.

We’re using BARRIER RED MITE POWDER, BARRIER LOUSE POWDER and VERM-X

I think a couple of the girls may have SCALY LEG MITE so we’re keeping an eye on them at the moment.  We don’t like to treat them with anything unless we’re absolutely sure they need it.
