    My favorit chicken lost some of her feathers from what i thought was from the other hens pecking at her, today i went to go check on her and i seen little black specks crawling so i guess it was mites i put dust bug beater on her to help her (my dad told me to) my dad said i have to spray this type of stuff(diffrent from the bug beater) all over the coop and every where what is a safer more cheaper thing to do. and will she dye????

    ps. shes 7 months a silver laced cochin and shes my baby
