Hi, One of my bantam hens hasn't looked like she was feeling the best today. This evening I picked her up and looked at her more closely. Her earlobe is really swollen. Right beside her swollen earlobe was a big tick. I am assuming that that is what caused the swelling. I pulled the tick off and put some comfrey salve called herbal savvy on the earlobe. I didn't know what else to do. I also noticed that she has mites. Does anyone have any suggestions? I am hoping the swelling will go down now that the tick is gone, but what if there is a bad infection there and it gets worse? I hope her earlobe doesn't pop. Please let me know if you have any suggestions. Thank you!
