Can I use Poultry Protector on Canaries and Finches? Joseph
Last modified: 18 Mar 2012, 10:47 AM
Hi Joseph,
Thats a great question... I wish I could give you a direct answer. I pulled up information from the manufacturer. The manufacturer says that it can be used on all types of poultry and fowl. Its an all natural solution free of chemicals. It seems pretty safe and the only warning is not to use on birds under 10 days old... so basically, theyre saying its ok for 11 day old chicks and also say that the protector can be sprayed as often as needed. This tells me that toxicity isnt an issue and I suspect it will be safe for your birds.
Ultimately, I can only give you what I have from the manufacturer. See below. I hope that helps.
Have a great night!
Best regards,

has anyone had a problem with Red mites in chicken coops? we got them this summer and are battling to get rid of them. we are using Poultry shield to wash the houses, but because they are made of wood, there are too many nooks and crannies where they can hide.
Has anyone got any ideas? Smile
