In the Brooder
- May 10, 2011
I've been reading through the other posts regarding fleas and mites on my chickens. I've had most of mine for 1 1/2 years now, the others I've had for about 6-8 weeks. We have indoor only cats. Yesterday after doing work in the coop I suddenly have these little bug things showing up in my hair (waist-length) and on my arms. I've checked the chickens and don't see any signs of bugs on them. They do have broken and missing feathers around their necks which I had attributed to them attacking each other. Could these be lice and/or mites? Can they get on us? How do I get rid of them? I'm a bit confused by all the threads I've been reading. How do I get rid of them off of me?
