Hi - my daughter got a silkie bantam to show for FFA. We have a chicken tractor. The chicken is female and about 6 months old. We got her when she was 4 months and about a week or 2 after getting her we notices little black bugs on her cage and in the food. I called the lady we got her from and she said it sounded like chicken mites and to use Sevin dust. We sprinkled Sevin dust all in the crevices of the wood, sprinkled it under the pine bedding with new bedding and dusted the chicken. We do this about twice a week. We haven't noticed many mites on the actual chicken but can't get rid of them in the cage. Her FFA teacher has chickens and said to use Adams Flea spray. We tried that. Nothing seems to be working. ANYONE had this problem and what did you do? PLEASE help! I am at my wits end!
