My hen has her first chick (today) and we noticed mites. Tiny tiny I think red ones. No blood when you crush them though. What do I do? I don't want to harm the new chick and the ones to hatch this week but I know these bugs cannot be good for her or them!!! HELP!!!
I noticed them because they were on me after refreshing the water and food knowing babies were coming. Now I see them at the top of the feathers. Almost like they are gravitating to the heat lamp. Should I put olive oil on the top of her feathers?
