So tonight I was out candling eggs that are under my broody hen Pollux. And I saw a few teeny little bugs crawling around on the eggs. So my question is; how do I go about treating her. I know I have to put Sevin dust on her but how should I go about it with the eggs? Do I dust them too? Just dust mamma? Any advice would be great, thanks :D

I would use a nylon stocking. Put the Sevin dust in it and gently put it under the wings and back of the hen. I would also think that you could put it around the eggs. The advantage of the stocking is that it spreads it evenly just by barely dabbing the surface.
