    I am not sure as our girls have never had them and i just checked them and they are clear. I have seen these little things before in the cracks of the plastic coop but they could just be an insect. Thanks!
    I do have poultry protector and they bathe daily.

    They look like an insect ... certainly not like any mites I have ever seen!
