    Hello to everyone,
    I have had chickens for about 7 years. At present, I have 8RIR's, 8 Bard Rocks, and 2 Sex Links. I took a break of about 2 years and had no chickens at all. When my daughter left for college last fall she suggested I needed something to "fill my empty nest" ....so chickens seemed the natural choice!
    I am presently having problems with mites, and would appreciate any and all advice!
    Thanks for welcoming me into the coop!
    Georgianna

    [​IMG] Use the google search bar on here and type in "mites", you will find lots of threads about it and how to take care of it. OR visit the "predators and pests" category. [​IMG] I have never had them, yet....so I am not much help. [​IMG]
