U give it when you notice lice and not by routine. I give ivermectin every 2-3 months but for worms. The best way to get ride of lice is by buying those lice drugs that are poured on their body. Or you have mix ash with sand and let them dustbath in it.

I don't think they're popular here. I did not find any when I tried to buy one.

If you have 1000 birds or more, will pour on be feasible? I thought ivermectin oral can take care of lice. If it doesn't, mixing ash in their sand bath will be less strenous. You may also add lice drug to the sand.
