Double whammy! 😖


Apr 19, 2021
Ok, I have a 2 for 1…😫
First, I think I have mites. I saw tiny bugs on a fan that I keep in my coop. I’ve looked on my chicks and don’t see any on them, it’s just mostly the coop. I have sprayed with Manna Pro Poultry Protector. I’ve read that Elector PSP is really great, so I’ll be looking into that. I’ve attached pictures for identification help.
Second, I had a chick die this morning. He was about 11 weeks old. We let them out to free range and he stayed in the run and was sleeping. He got scared off by another chicken but then just stopped and quit running. I was able to pick him up with no problems. He kept wanting to close his eyes. I ran in to get NutriDrench for him. We tried giving it to him, but his neck was all over the place. It was like he was having convulsions. This whole ordeal was only about 20 min. He had been normal all this time; eating, drinking, normal stool. They are still on medicated chick crumble. Any insight would be appreciated. Thank you!
