My silkie has acted funny for the past few days. I was afraid my bigger chickens had been picking on her because we've had bad weather and they've had to stay in their run a lot more. This morning, she didn't come out when I opened the door and I found her laying on the coop floor. I scooped her up and brought her in thinking they had pecked her or something. When I looked down, my hands were crawling with mites! Mom went to the co-op and got some dust for poultry mites that we put on her, and we fed her some sugar water, but I don't know if she is going to make it. I haven't payed much attention to my chook this past month because I just delivered my first baby. Now, I feel so guilty! So, I'm sure my whole coop is infested, as well as my three other hens. I'm wondering if the silkie was affected worse because she doesn't sleep on the roost. She sleeps in the pine chips. We've had a few very cold nights, and I bet the mites have swarmed her. What do you all think? I've got a brand new baby and a husband who won't be home before dark anytime this week. Any suggestions on how to treat this?
