Hi there! Just a quick question. So I have three chickens. Pearl, Bonnie and Roxy. I need some advice. Recently I have noticed that they have been dustbathing a lot more. They never usually use their dustbath but now they use it at least once every day. I thought that this could be because they have mites. I decided to check their feathers for mites. They had just dustbathed and it was wet! So they were quite muddy. I checked as much as I could though but coulldnt see anything moving. How else can I check and prevent mites? I clean the coop every week and put mites powder all over when I do so. Sorry for asking so many questions. This is my first flock.
