    Thanks for the Grand welcome. I actually had a account a couple years ago but I lost it so anyways. Thanks for the suggestion.

    Mites usually live in the coop itself, not on the chicken, they come out and night to feed on the chickens.
    You need to treat the coop, every nook and cranny, as well as the chickens.

    There are several chemicals that will do the tricks, you'll have to decide which will work best for you.
    I have no hands on experience, so cannot make any specific recommendations.

    Read thru a few of the threads in the link below to help you figure the best way.
