I have just purchased 11 chicks. They are straight run and a couple different hatches (1 Sexlink 4 days old, 6 SLW that are 3 days, 3 SLW day olds and 2 SLW that are 2 weeks old) All are in the same brooder box, but I noticed that one of the 2 week olds is scratching at his/her head and picking at it's feathers. Not sure what to look for if it were to be mites.
I do have DE sprinkled in the brooder just in case. But just thought I'd ask and see if I can catch it before it spreads, if it is in fact mites.
Maybe I'm just being a paranoid first timer
Any help appreciated :)
