Thanks so much. Whoever thought I would shed tears over a rooster that " I didn't even want". I miss him. He leaves a big gap in our garden. :(

That's Sandra, and yes, she's good and still there. The other vets there will have a go at chickens, but it's best to ask for her by name as the others are not so keen or knowledgable on birds. :D

Neil Christensen is in Patumahoe is an Avain Specialist, http://www.avivet.co.nz/
good no nonsense information, I had to take notes because he uses words I've never heard of!
he also sells good specialist avian products and often at better prices than going direct (it seems Flubenol is one example) - he has a mite killer that's meant to be the bees knees too (no, its not organic, but I have to say, I'm done with diatom/diatomite, I find using the empty container to hit the mites is more effective!)

Glad somebody else now knows that DE is a huge moneymaking have. Might just as well make a dust bath with dry earth and a bit of sand and the chooks will be happy to use it and it won't be as costly.
And, as for using it as a wormer............................ :roll:

Vets at Takanini vet associates (gt south road) also good for Avian related things.

Regarding DE - I agree that most DE products are useless. They don't tell you what's in it and it doesn't work.

I have, however, bought my very first bag of DE from Ian Selby (PoultryNZ) who, to my knowledge, was the first person to import it, and this powder was very effective. 1 teaspoon on either side of the roost once a fortnight and no problems for the 3 seasons this bag lasted. It is more of a preventative than a treatment if used so sparingly.

As for other suppliers? Flour looks exactly the same...

Unfortunately most people wait until the mites have taken over the coop and then the big guns have to be brought in. No 'natural' way of getting on top of a serious infestation fast.

Yeah, I've never understood that one. How is something that is meant to function by cutting and dehydrating the pests supposed to work inside the body, where it is rather damp?
