Mama hen got mites while sitting on eggs.. Now babies have mites! What do I do?
Since they are so young I would hesitate using "traditional" methods like poultry dust.
That said, baby chicks will dust bathe if given a chance so the first thing I would do is give them a dish pan of dirt/sand mix with a little DE or ash mixed in. (I did this for mine in the first week and they bathed like champs).
Fresh Eggs Daily has an article on Natural Prevention, so you might want to a look at her "Garlic Juice" recipe. I think it would be mild enough for the babies and it sounds like it "mite" be worth a try
