We were given a chick (americauna), about a month old, by someone who raises chickens. It was an odd egg she stuck under a brooding hen, and she is letting us have it. Anyhow, her chickens have mites. I have no idea if this baby has mites or not ( I haven't seen it yet, dh is bringing it home now) and am worried about how to treat it, and if it will spread mites to the rest of my chickens. How do I know if it has mites, how do I treat it and prevent spreading it? Forgot to say: He's also bringing me 2 silkies. They came from the mother of the woman who gave us the chick. DOn't know if they have mites or not.
