very tiny crawly things . half the size of a flea. If you put them under a magnifier they would look similar to a spider I think, there are different kinds.
My birds had the dust-looking kind on their feathers. It was like crawling sand. But they also had the kind that are yellowish-clear like termites. I think those are the lice? They lay thick crusty eggs at the base of feathers ESPECIALLY around the vent. They chewed my white layers raw before I figured it out.
I dusted them and everything around them with sevin.
