have 7 chicks that I have in a brooder in my bathroom. I had 5 for about a week and then added 2 bantam Cochins 3 days ago. After adding the 2 new ones I noticed a small black spec floating in the water. Then today I noticed something above the eye on one of my Cochins. When I looked under a microscope it looks almost like 2 small tics. They were attached to the skin. I'm not very versed on bugs that chickens get so not sure if mites/lice would bury in like this?? And what do I do to treat? I checked my other chicks and did not find anything.
