Thanks again, I went to the feed store today and bought the 2 litre sprayer- It was only 12$. then I bought 4 large new nest boxes- $16. each, then some Avitril (500ml) ~$14. mite spray, and some Coopex another $14. Yes it is Coopex I was using. I have had experiences with using insecticides with chicken a very long time ago (you see I am OLD) any way, I noticed when I used it a few days ago that Coopex settles really easily and this sediment was questionable as to strength so I made myself use small amounts and kept it mixed as best I could. -- I didn't mention the name before because I was worried someone would use it without proper advise. I used it at 10ml to 1 litre. as advised by the cockatiel association president. It also was on the pigeon breeders web site so I felt a bit more comfortable about using it. I will spray the boxes with it but I will slow down the dipping for sure (still will dip the chickens).
Its good to have members post back as u have done, and report as to what works/doesnt etc ....
We are not fussed about using brand names here, as to what works/doesnt/whats best etc.
All good info for others, after all that what this site was set up to do for Kakariki.
