I have a buff sitting on some eggs for about a week now and i just noticed these little flesh/white colored bugs on her vent. I had DE in the can that i got from tractor supply. I believe its food grade (brown color) I sprinkled it on her hind end and all over her along with her bedding ond some on the eggs. Will this hurt the eggs shes sitting on? How can i get rid of these bugs? Should i get some more ( White) DE? Sevin dust? I checked some of my other birds and they dont seem to have any bugs on them, but they are out dusting during the day. My buff is contained to a small nesting area sitting and will not move. Any help will be greatly appriciated. Thank you

I would go with the Sevin Dust. If you put some in the foot of a pair of panty hose, you can use it to dust under her wings and around her vent pretty effectively. I would also take the eggs out and dust the nest, then put them back, if it were me.
