    I have a little peachick and I went to see how the little guy was doing in his box which is inside, and see the little guy sleeping, but than I notice very tiny tan almost the same color as the chick crawling around on his head D: !!! I look on the net to see what it could be and i'm guessing its tiny mites D: I never notice them till now, and I took the guy out when he woke up and I try to see if I could find them again to make sure I was not just seeing things but I fail to find any. These guys hide really well I'll give them that. Will they hurt my peachick or just be very annoying? and I would like to destroy them, but idk if it will be safe of the young chick.


    Thats the little guy there, cute as can be. I'm going to look him over again and as I type this I now feel like I have little crawlers on me now >3< !!!! BLEH!

    Flea bath time. Not fleas but it'll kill other critters too.
