    Hi

    I have recently discovered we have chicken mites in our coup (it is basically a wooden shed so apparently its not surprising!) How is the best way of getting rid of them and how do we prevent them coming back? We have already lost one chicken to the mites so it would be good to know!

    I haven't dealt with that problem (yet? [​IMG]) but can suggest to you that if you do a search on "mites" in the search box above, LOTS of people have and there's a ton of information on this site about treating for mites.

    Good luck!
