ok so ive dealt with lice and mites before but these guys are new to me. solid red (illuminous red almost they are so bright) tiny bugs, in the hen house. they dont look like mites that have just had a feed, these are solid red, legs and all. Found 2 dead 9 week old chicks in there this morning, covered in them, guessing they were eating alive the hen house were only dusted last week (you can still see the xerox-p dust over all) all the normal mites are dead, but these little pesky critters have sprung up now and the anti mite dust seems inaffective? any idea what they are and how i get rid of them? ive removed all small chickens for now....am not letting anyone near that house!
