Help!!! Chicks hatching under broody with MITES!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Just went out to check on my broody's chicks that are hatching as I speak.....there's bugs crawling on them. Can I use poultry powder on them. Please help!

Can't you just wipe the bugs off? do you have a inside brooder just in case for this? What are the eggs resting on? (Which I mean like, ceded cops, newspaper, nesting twig things)

There's still a couple eggs to hatch...but I snatched the chicks and brought them in. The broody was actually on a towel that was on shavings. In the brooder they're on a puppy pad. I placed a tiny amount of poultry powder on them and I can see the dead bugs on the pad. I really wanted the broody to raise these guys though.
