How I use nesting box herbs
There is a lot of literature on the benefits of herbs for preventing external parasites in poultry. I do advocate for natural treatments and preventatives where possible. However, if you can see lice, mites or red mite on your birds or their environment, you need can't just rely on this product. I recommend using Chicken Coach Feather & Skin Poultry Powder on your birds. This powder is vet formulated, all-natural and free of rotenone, DE and chemicals.
