    Just noticed one of my leghorn pullets had this red 'rash' on her face. They are very skittish and it's VERY hot here so I don't want to rile them up attempting to catch her, but does this look like some sort of mite problem? They are 9.5 weeks old and they do have DE in the coop and run. Should I check TSC for eprinex? I could use Sevin as well, but again, they are quite skittish so I am concerned about having to 'dust' them all. Will clean the coop again tomorrow, but it's 100 in the shade out there so can't do that right away [​IMG].. It may be hard to see, but it's essentually little red dots around the eyes and beak.
