    Re: Ear Mites

    I know this an old post that is why I looked it to ask this question. Can somebody tell me how do you know if a cock has ear mites? Guess what I am trying to find out is do they act a certain way? Thanks for your time in advance.

    Re: Ear Mites

    They get a crusty build up over and around the ear, they shake thier heads alot and startle easy as they can't hear you or something coming up on them.
    Ivermectin is very good for this problem, inject or oral depends on what you like to use. But use it sparingly as 2 much can effect the liver.

    Hope this helps
    Cheers

    I agree, VetRx is good multi-use medication, for cold and roup, lice & mites, scaly legs and eye worm.

    Good Luck

    You may have to repeat treatment two or three times before you see results.

    Re: Ear Mites

    Mosquito getting bad around here all this rain. Start watching for signs of pox. Now ear mites went away when I started using Ivomec regular. 1/10cc under the skin. Couple drops in each ear,nostril, and down throat of Vetrx. Swab Vetrx under wings in joint good also. I have boiled they ears out with peroxide when I had one packed and bird needed some pressure relief. Got be 20 years since I had a bad case.

    I can't see any crust (from afar) but they have the other symptoms Matt Dunne describes. I'll check tonight and try what Bama said.
