Lice & Mite Treatments for Chickens

Lice and Eggs on White Chicken Vent

Lice can irritate and bite chickens.

Red mites suck the blood of chickens (and sometimes you).

Worms take the nutrient from your chickens, cause blood loss, anemia and sometimes kill.

All of these pests irritate, cause them discomfort and sometimes premature death of your chicken flock. There are effective lice & mite treatments for chickens. Many unknown ailments in chickens that can be helped or cured by a good worm and lice treatment and we suggest that you do this every 3-4 months along with a complete pen clean. Read our separate post on worm treatments.

With all the humidity this year the population of lice and mites has increased dramatically and here are the ways that we suggest to treat your flock to make their life more comfortable.

Maldison:

is available as a powder or liquid. The powder can be sprinkled on the chicken and dusted to the skin level of the chicken. This will kill the lice and mites on the chicken and we have found that it also seems to kill the lice eggs. Nil egg witholding.

The liquid Maldison 50, can be used at a low concentration on the chicken as a spray or a bath that they can be dipped into. Lice of Tropical Fowl Mite on birds: 500ml Maldison in 100L of water. Spray birds at a rate of 50L per 1000 birds.

At the stronger concentration and added to a sprayer this product can be sprayed into the pen and on the perches to eradicate the pests. Lice and mites in poultry houses: Mix 500ml Maldison in 25L of water to spray nesting boxes, litter and walls. Mix 500ml Maldison in 8L water to paint onto roosts. Repeat applications in 8-14 days to destroy lice hatching from eggs present at first treatment.

Pestene powder:

How to dust chickens for lice
Dusting with pestene.

is effective against lice, mites and fleas in poultry, dogs, cats, horses, calves and goats. Composition: Sulfur 50 g/kg, rotenone 10 g/kg. Pestene can be dusted on the chickens and the perch and nesting box to treat lice and mites. Nil egg witholding.

Staldren powder:

is a pen disinfectant powder that can be safely used in your pen in place of lime while the chickens are about as it will not burn their feed. This product reduces the smells in the pen as reduces ammonia levels and helps to reduce fly numbers. Staldren also treats red mites that may be in the litter of the pen. Pleasant smelling and helps with wet, damp pens.

Builders Lime:

can be used in pens under clean bedding. Care should be taken with amount and to cover as this can burn the feet of the flock Will help reduce smells in the pen.

Diatomaceous Earth:

can help control parasites, it can be added to dust baths and used on the chickens. Care must be taken to not have the chicken inhale the dust as it can be detrimental. Diatomaceous earth is not poisonous; it does not have to be eaten in order to be effective. Diatomaceous earth causes insects to dry out and die by absorbing the oils and fats from the cuticle of the insect’s exoskeleton. Its sharp edges are abrasive, speeding up the process. It remains effective as long as it is kept dry and undisturbed. If you use DE directly on the poultry and don’t get immediate results you will need to use pestene or maldison as a lice or mite infestation can stop your flock laying.

Dust baths:

A perfectly dug out dust bath.

help prevent parasites but they won’t deal with an existing infestation quickly enough – for that you’ll need to directly treat the flock. You can add cold wood ash to the dust bath area to also help the flock as it dusts.

Coopex:

Coopex can be sprayed in the pen, when the flock is out free ranging for the day. It will kill pests in the pen. Not to be used directly on the chickens.

Lice and mites can upset your flock and need to be treated. Red mite can infest your house and bite humans. Wild birds can carry lice and mites and steal your feed. Try to stop wild birds accessing your pen. Keeping a dust bathing area for your flock will help. Every 3-4 months chickens can be treated with maldison or pestene. If you find active lice or mites you should repeat the treatment in a week. Every change of season clean out the bedding, spray the pen with maldison, coopex or pirethrin. Dust with lime or staldren and replace bedding. Sprinkle the nesting box with pestene, DE or maldison powder so that when the girls sit in there to lay they are not laying into a bed of pest.

How to worm your chickens.

Lice can irritate and bite chickens.

Red mites suck the blood of chickens (and sometimes you).

Worms take the nutrient from your chickens, cause blood loss, anemia and sometimes kill.

All of these pests irritate, cause them discomfort and sometimes premature death of your chicken flock. Many unknown ailments in chickens that can be helped or cured by a good worm and lice treatment. Evans Chickens suggest that you do this every 3-4 months along with a complete pen clean. Read our separate post on lice & mite treatments.

Evans Chickens has available for sale various products to treat your flock for worms, lice and mites. All these products are approved for use on poultry and have no egg withholding period, so you can still eat your delicious eggs while looking after your flock. Sometimes other people promote the use of off label items to worm your chickens. We see no need when there are approved poultry wormers available.

Levamisole:

is an in water wormer – Effective treatment for Ascaridia galli (intestinal round worm), Heterakis gallinae (duodenum round worm) and Capillaria obsignata (intestinal round worm. Chickens need to have water withheld overnight and then this be their only drinking water for 6 hours. Chickens can resist this product as they get older as it has a bitter taste. Evans Chickens has this product in powdered form which is a cost effective wormer as we don’t sell you the water. We can mail this to your for around $10 for up to 50 chickens or less if you pickup. This is the active ingredient in Kilverm and Sykes Big L Wormer for Poultry & Pigs.

Flubenol:

is an in-feed wormer which contains flubendazole, a broad-spectrum benzimidazole anthelmintic which can be used as an aid in the control of sensitive strains of the most important gastrointestinal worm species that commonly occur in chickens. This wormer has recently been approved for use in Australia, but has been used in Europe for some time. Flubenol treats roundworms Ascaridia galli, Heterakis gallinarum, Capillaria spp., and tapeworms (the only approved product that treats tapeworm ) (Raillietina sp.). Chickens are feed as only feed for 7 consecutive days.

We only sell flubenol premixed into our feeds that we sell in 5kg $15 or 10kg bags $25. We figure that most mature chickens eat about 1kg per week so you will need 5kg for a flock of 5 and shelf life of the mixed product is 6 months. We find that this is the easiest method to worm your chickens as it is simply in their food and they happily peck away. This product is mainly used on commercial chicken farms.

Apple Cider Vinegar:

In terms of its worming capabilities, apple cider vinegar acts as a mild antiseptic and also a mild antibiotic. Apple cider vinegar will kill some bacteria and germs, and deter worms from making a home in your chickens. Again, it’s not a 100% guaranteed treatment, but still beneficial to feed to your chickens.

Worming your chickens on a regular basis will improve the life of your chickens.

Using a poultry approved product is easy and simple. Please do not worm your chickens with cattle, sheep or ornamental bird products. It makes no sense to us to keep chickens for eggs and then to potentially have to throw away their eggs for 2 or more weeks because the product you have just used to worm or lice treat them can carry thru to their eggs. Companies invest large amounts of research into appropriate products for egg producing chickens. Just remember that what your chicken eats, goes into their eggs and ultimately you, if you consume them.

Hyline Browns – Excellent Layers

Believe it or not, the Hyline Brown is not only extremely friendly but one of the best laying breeds in the world.

It’s easy to fall in love with the friendly nature of Hyline’s and their endless curiosity. Hylines are a willing and robust companion for small children too and will often squat to be picked up.

But where did she come from?

The Hyline first emerged about 90 years ago in Iowa, USA. She is the brainchild of egg farmers looking for a breed that would meet the needs of a growing population. In Australia SBA owns the licence to breed the Hyline Brown and they do an excellent job.

It is said that Hylines are a protected blend of prized reliable layers, respectively the Rhode Island Red and New Hampshire. This extraordinary bird is thanks largely to science and breeding for desirable qualities.

As a result, here is a hen that if fed a high-grade diet, will give you an egg a day for almost 2 years! Amazingly, (because she doesn’t normally go into moult or go broody) it’s possible for her to continue supplying eggs for up to 5 years.

What’s more, thanks to the quality assurance methods in place for breeding, she’s better equipped to cope with many of the common poultry ailments. Therefore, with your daily loving care, it’d be a rare trip to the vet for any of these girls.

But in your own backyard terms, that means more eggs per box of feed compared to other breeds. Keep up her 16% or 17% protein feed and reap the benefits.

Plenty in stock and ready for you to start your journey with backyard chickens or to add to your flock. Contact us today to make an appointment to collect some Hylines.

How to Clean a Chicken Pen

Here is a link to our latest YouTube on how to clean out your chicken pen.

We think that at least every 3 months chicken pens need a good clean. We move the chickens out for the day while we clean their house. We remove the items from the pen. Remove the old bedding, spray with Maldison 50, dust with disinfectant powders. We then replace bedding, perches (which we dust for mites) and return feeders nesting boxes and water.
