What is the appropriate solution of Permethrin to use to spray the chickens and chicken coop?

We wish to treat backyard chickens for scaly leg mites and other possible mites.


Per the Permethrin SFR product label:  "When treating poultry houses for bedbugs or chicken mites, apply as a spray 4 fl oz to 10 gallons of water.  For severe infestation, it is permissible to use 4 fl oz to 4 gallons.

When treating poultry directly:  Use 1-4 fl oz in 3 3/4 gallons water, which should treat roughly 375 birds. Use 1 gallon of coarse spray per 100 birds."
