    I have a infestation of tiny brown bugs in my coop. They look like they are smaller than pepper, they are everywhere. if get eggs out they are all over my hands. What are they? How do I get rid of them?

    It sounds as if you have a mite infestation. Type mite treatment in the search bar at the top of the page and do an on site search.
