10 litres is approximately a bucket full so fill it in the laundry making it comfortably warm to put your hand in. The soap flakes/wetting agent refers to something like Lux laundry soap (a pure soap product- not a laundry powder) A tiny squirt (few drops) of dish washing detergent or shampoo is ok, or swish around a bar of pure soap (velvet) in the water. This just helps the Permethrin to 'stick' to the chook.

thank you,

I am just now trying to think the best way to catch them to dip them,
I have 3 runs and I have a small run that I can prpley leave them over night and catch them in that one or,
put them in the moble chook run over night,
I have 4 chooks in 1 run,
and 9 in the other run,
if I put them in the moble run all over night that would be ok would it??

Mobile run will be fine. Put them wherever they will be easiest to catch tomorrow. Move them this evening when there is not much light - they will be easier to catch.
Did you ever put the blue cellophane over your torch? If so use that - you will be able to see but your chooks will be calmer.

never heard of the blue cellophane

I was reading the box and it says don't use were food is around,
so if I dip the layers, how long can I eat the eggs and give away the eggs after dip the layers

That's ok twitch - google and the search button are my memory's best friends these days.
Looking back thru some of your old threads while I was looking for the 'cellophane', I was reminded of not only how much you have learnt but also how much others have learned by you asking the questions

after dipping them and then putting them back to the run to dry,
they would not get sick or anything if they scratch or peak themselves while they drying off.

I dip 4 chooks and it worked like a charm, except 2 chooks got out in the back yard and had fun chasing it, ( glad I had my coffee first )

but it was so easy dipping them in, now it is going to be fun with 9 hens.

after dipping them, and when I get eggs off them will they be ok.

Glad it's working. The eggs will be fine and the chooks will be much more comfortable.

thank you sue,
the only part that did not get wet is the heads,
if there is lice near the heads would that matter.

That will be ok. As they move about any on their heads should come in contact with the Permethrin. You can use your hands to wet their heads, just avoid the eyes and don't submerge them under the water.
