royal poinciana tree not green enough

my royal Poinciana tree does not seem to be the dark green it should be. I planted it from a seedling gradually putting into larger pots. This spring it was planted outside and is now about 3' tall. some of the branches turn yellow and fall off. this tree is very special as I planted it for my sister who just passed away. It was her favorite tree and I do not want to loose it. It has taken 3 years to get to this point. Thank you, Janice Paestella

Treatment for vent gleet

I have a backyard hen w/ the symptoms of vent gleet - see attachments. I have been using homemade remedies, e.g., probiotics and vinegar in the drinking water, in addition to washing her, but to no avail. I'm now ready to try an anti-fungal medicine. I have read online of the use both external creams and internal medicines. What is the recommended procedure and what product to use? thanks. . .

insects invading my body

Thank you for the opportunity to consult.
I have all the same simptoms as described on info about bird mites except that the insects enter my skin. I take them out and, almost immediatly, another one is in the wound.
I left my house during 7 weeks and they did not die. How long can they live without a meal?
What kind of mites or ticks are they and how can I kill them?They are inside my house and outside, in the garden. The problem is that they are in my skin, in all stages of their life (eggs, adults, etc.) . They are like sand, millions of them. Also, they are in my computer, phone and documents. If I leave the house, I will take them with me, in my skin! This is what has happend when I left before. How to take them from my skin? I do not sleep at night. I only sleep a few hours when I am extremely exhausted. I can not seat and have dinner in peace and enjoy a meal because they are everywhere. I am itchy. I am in pain since I have wounds in my body that I made to take them out of my skin and the wounds do no heal because more of them go in the wounds and near the wounds. My nerve system is getting damaged and I do not know how much more time I can resist staying like this. My life is being destroyed by this infestation. Please, help!
