brownish red tiny bugs that look like a flea or aphid on their skin and their feathers are falling out. Mainly on their bottom and rib areas.

The only thing I use and it gets rid of everything is frontline spray. Only use the stuff for puppy's and kittens though. Put on tiny spray on the back of the neck, one under each wing, and one above the vent (not on the vent) In two days...no more of any bugs on ur chicken
