    Hi everyone, My chicken has got new babies and there is little tiny bugs everywhere, please let me know how I get rid of them. They are in the saw dust which I have changed and they crawl all up my arms when Im attending to them. I have tried malawash and bug spray but they didnt work.

    Probably mites. Do a search on poultry lice and mites in the custom search box (top right of page). There's lots of information on how best to treat, be sure that any treatment you choose is suitable for the chicks. Good luck.
