I was wondering if you ever found a solution? I, too bought chickens that had Everything. Red mites, lice, Respiratory issues, Northern fowl mites, coccidiosis, worms, and probably everything else. I have built a new coop, used 7 dust, Permetherin dust, DE, permethrin concentrated 10% AND 38.7 % used ACV, Oil, Garlic bath, and been alternating the two Permethrins every week for 8 weeks, every 7 days. I didn't see any mites on the chickens but today in the run, I grabbed a handful of dirt from the bottom of my dog pen (that I use for a shelter and part of the run) and in one handful I bet I saw 10 red mites. I had my chickens for 4 months before I even knew it. I am new, first ones. Something that was supposed to bring me joy has caused me misery not counting over $1000.00. She saw me coming and screwed me good. I am at my wits end. I have cleaned out my coops, I have two, everytime and started from bottom up, even pouring glasses full aound the perimeter of coops, run and outside. Please let me know, I know this is an old post but I NEED HELP!
Can you get some photos of the mites and the chickens?
