    Did you get some permethrin to treat the hens?

    If you are going to use bleach and a smoke bomb - make sure your bleach solution dries well, there's plenty of ventilation and your chickens are not in the housing and far away as possible.

    Glad I could be of help! Red mites come out only and night and suck the blood of the chickens.
    I found this article online that should help you rid your chicken coop of red mites.
