I conveniently dismissed mites as a non-Alaska issue. I had a limpish Amaracauna (pure), but I figured it was not a good breed for our very cold weather. I have two lights in our insulated coop and all others are active and well. This bird was near death today so I brought her inside only to find tons of bugs on her. They look yellow and are quite big. There might have been another type of bug on her too, one that was a rich red color and skinnier than the yellow bugs. I am freaked out and I don't even want her in my house but I will do whatever I can to heal her if it's within my power...any advice?? I dusted her upper half with DE but I am waiting for her to improve before I dust her further. I syringed a tbsp of sugar water and she's sitting under a bright, warm light, inside a fluffified tote. Will do syringe more water shortly. Of course after I am done with her I will dust the coop. I'll also crush fresh garlic (everyday?). What else??
