I see a lot of posts about mites/lice, but no one seems to say they are getting bit. I woke up with 3 bites, next day 5 more, now today 6 more. My son, who holds the chickens a lot, got 2 bites yesterday and so far no more. His are not together as move are in groups, 4 here 3 there, etc. They itch really bad and I only get them during the night. I've washed bedding, vacuumed, shower, etc but still getting bites. My baby sleeps with me and he has none. Anyone know what's going on? Are these red mite bites? If so why doesn't my son have more? I haven't checked my chickens for fear of getting even more bites. Advice? Ideas? Do red mites do this to humans?
