I bought 4 peachicks a week ago that are about 3 weeks. I was holding one this afternoon and noticed this teeny tiny mite looking like thing (like a tiny sesame seed) on its head and near its eye. Are these mites? What is the best way to treat them if it is? I use DE on my all my chickens and their chicks would this help a peachick also? Any help would greatly appreciated. Oh btw, I also saw one actually crawling around inside its ear canal.....good lord made me itching looking at it!!! Thank you, Victoria & 4 itchy chicks Wrote this in a reply but in case ppl don't read the reply here it is again...sorry I keep reading about ppl using Seven dust 5% on nesting boxes and the birds themselves. But on the container it says keep away from pets? I'm confused.
