In the Brooder
- Sep 14, 2014
hi, a while ago I noticed some tiny silvery-gray bugs on one of my hens. It was mostly on her neck, head and under the wings. I used sevin dust and killed them immediately and worked great! I've cleaned my coop completely (washed it down with organic soap) a couple times and now they are back more than ever! They are always on top of the egg box and and one of my Broody hens has them all over her head since she stays in the eggs box a lot more. I've noticed they are on several of my hens (I have 9) I really want to know what these are and how I can prevent them and if they are of major concern.
