    We have 8 chickens, that are almost a year old. Today our Rhode Island Red was in the nesting box, when we spotted a brown bug on her. [​IMG]We saw a couple more. Does any one know what it could be, or maybe how to treat them? We live in Northern California, they are tiny brown bugs with wings, and what looks like antennnas. I'm thinking that they might be gnats.Thank you!!! [​IMG]
