White tiny bugs on eggs

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I found our 4th egg this morning and picked it up, but it had about 8-10 tiny little white bugs crawling on it.  I squished them or knocked them off, but wondering what these are?  They don't fit the description I've read of mites or lice.  This is the first time I've seen them.  I plan on dusting in some DE today - Thelma seems to be too big for the next boxes we built so she is just laying in a corner of the coop.  I will dust all the bedding with DE to see if that helps any, but hoping someone knows what these bugs are??

Living the dream out in the middle of nowhere.  We have 9 ducks, 9 hens and 2 roosters so far.  Plus 4 dogs.
