I've noticed when I touch my day olds that my broody hatched, I get a ton of little quick moving bugs, look kinda like tony ticks. What can I do?!

Here's a video of a few on my hand

One chick is completely covered on the face and eyes!
I think they are mites, im going to go buy some mite powder and carefully powder and move them to a new broader. I'm sure mama is infested too.

Not sure how ill get this under control, just hoping I dont lose chicks to this mess!
