In the Brooder
- Apr 24, 2013
Hello I have 11 9 month old chickens all layers. I've noticed some feather loss on my girls, I checked the vent area of my sexlink to find these little bugs scatter out of sight!! And not a lot but some white things on the base of the feathers? My buff is missing some feathers on her neck I can't see any bugs on her. At a close up look all my chickens have minimal feather loss and skin looks irritated I gave them a very good bath in DE today really good! Is that going to help? Should I do anything else? They seem to be acting ok. It's been really really wet here in Michigan so they don't have much dry sand to bath in someone please help! Thanks so much!!!
