Over the weekend we cleaned out the chicken coop. While doing so, I discovered I had mites crawling on me. I then noticed them on eggs. What can I do to treat this problem. DE has so many mixed reviews on the forum that I don't whether to use it or not to treat as it says its more of a preventive. I want to treat this issue for my girls. What harm can this to to my birds? Can it effect the eggs that they lay? I also have a broody hen, could this hurt her since she is in the coop ALL DAY? Do the effect people? Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!
