In the Brooder
- Jun 12, 2017
Hi there BYC, we're hatching chicks under a first-time broody hen, just reached day 12 and have taken our broody off the nest to allow her to get some food and water (she refuses to move by herself) only to realise that she's crawling with red mites! As it's our first time hatching eggs and her first time being broody we're not sure what to do in regards to moving her and the eggs to clean the coop and get rid of the infestation? Any advice?
