My long-suffering other half popped down to the allotment this morning to find that the mites were back with avengence. So there is tomorrow mornings jobs – dust the chickens and totally redo the nest box with anti-mite spray, yet again.
I am going to have a good long search more more effective anti-mite solutions as I don’t think that it’s working as well as it needs to. Otherwise I will have to do it every day next week in the hope to clearing it all out.
Sadly we lost one of our quail yesterday – they are (were) very old so it’s unsurprising but still a bit sad. My husband isn’t massively keen on getting anymore so we may have a break from quail for a bit.
