    I would dust them in Diatomaceous Earth! That will take of the problem speedy quick. You can probably find it at your local feed store!

    Ivermectin spotted on them will clear the birds - the coops also need to be dusted. Search the forums for Ivermectin useage.

    Yes, those bugs can be pesky. Search around here in the archives and I am sure you will come up with the solution to rid the coop of them. Enjoy your chicken adventures!
