    Hi, 1 of my chicks that hatched Friday has a clump of about 12 or so little seed like things about half a mm under its skin behind its neck, has anybody any idea what these are.

    They look like some sort of parasite to me and shouldn't be there!!

    I know others may be able to tell you exactly what this is, but I'd begin with a soft dusting of Sevin or some other louse powder to get this under control. Dust on the 'eggs', be careful of your chick's breathing.[​IMG]

    They are under the skin, but today the area is a big blister about 10mm in dia. like you get with a bad burn.
