So today I went outside and did all my normal chicken duties, and moved the quail tractor. (Don't yell at me,my quail are housed next to my chickens, i know it's bad husbandry but they seem to be doing fine and always have been.) And I moved a few fence pieces I had on the ground next to the coop. And to my surprise there were little red mites under it, not a ton,but maybe 50 or so on the whole board. I looked under the wood on the other side of the coop and there were a few more. I ha ent noticed any mites on my chickens, and was holding a Silkie right after, and didn't see anything.(They looked alot like baby spiders, bright red) I'm going to check more thoroughly tomorrow of course, but any tips removing mites? I have DE, and try to provide a dusting area for them,but they never use it. Any tips on convincing chickens to dirt bathe? I provided a DE and dirt mix for my quail and they dusted off for the rest of the day. I could also give them garlic or garlic powder, if that helps but I'm not sure how one would feed it to their chickens. Any help is appreciated!
