    Had a chicken rodeo in the local Walmart parking lot today. Finally caught him/her (Not sure which yet) and have found mites.
    What is a quick and good treatment for them? They are tiny, black mites. (Aren't mites black and lice white?)
    He/she is quarantined from other birds for now at the local shelter.
    Thanks for any help.

    Your local farm or feed store should have poultry dust for treating for mites.
