This may seem to be a silly question to some of you. I am pretty new to keeping chickens. We only have 3 hens. We had a red mite problem at the beginning of spring and took care of it and have not had a problem since. Well with all the leaves falling I started adding a lot of yard stuff in the run fore them to scratch around on. A week later I see signs of the mite problem again. My question is instead of trying to catch them during the day could I just take them off the roost in the evening?
