My 3 week old peeps have some kind of bugs, I think.  They are always pecking at themselves and they actually look like they're molting!!  What can I do that is safe?  I've never had this problem before...:(  Thank you......

I just notice that they are always pecking at themselves.  I know this is gross, but there's skinny brown tiny slivered bugs on my tables....:O(
