I have not heard of using sulphur and soap for controling mites and lice. Perhaps there is another product avalible to you for this? I only suggest treating for lice or mites if you know you have a problem. On the other hand. I am not familier with your area and so your situation may reguire different managment than mine. I guess I dont have an answer for you but thought I would try to get things started. Good luck.

Bill

I'm not sure what the soap is for, but, when our rabbits got mites and their hair was falling out on their backs etc. we would take a bucket, put sulfer powder in water, stir it up and dip them completely. The white rabbits turned yellow but changed back to white ehrn dry. I have never used this form of parasite control on poultry so don't know if it works on birds.
good luck
