    I Was Holding My New Rooster "sully" And My Husband And I Noticed Little White Bugs Crawling On His Eyes And On The Red Part Of His Face. We Discussed That We Should Get Some Powder For The Coop.
    Later I Was Holding My White Silkie, Kissing Her Goodnight , And When I Looked Down A My Black Shirt, I Noticed A Bunch Of Little Things Crawling On Me!!!!!!! THEY LOOKED WHITE, ALMOST TRANSPARENT. VERY SMALL AND ROUNDISH

    What Is It??

    http://ohioline.osu.edu/vme-fact/0018.html It sounds like lice. You'll want to use sevin dust to treat all your chickens. You need to dust everywhere in their house also including nests and roosts. Repeat dusting everything again in 10 days, including all your chickens.
