Yep its mites: the chicken will likely stop laying and begin pulling out her feathers in irritation. Not urgent, she'll be uncomfortable but can live a few weeks like this. It's a spray and a powder that you put near vent and under wings, she will spread it around while grooming. Better yet put into dust where they take a dust bath. http://ohioline.osu.edu/vme-fact/0018.html http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20080117192924AA8KFCM

powder you should be able to get at a hardware or feed store.
