    How do you get Mites off of Baby Chicks? A friend of mine says there are Mites on a chick that just hatched 2 - 3 days ago. I just need to know what to tell him. Any help would be appreciated!

    I had a hen hatch some chicks that ended up with mites, I dusted the hen, and as the chicks slept down under her they in turn were dusted that way... all was well.
