    One of my chickens seems to be a bit scaly around its crop, so i checked it for mites and there seem to be very small white rounded things running about and a few larger oval shaped light pink translucent colour. I have checked out some pictures and cant seem to find anything that looks similar Any ideas. The other 3 havent got any.

    treat for mites/lice..

    Sevin or poultry dust..
    such as Ectiban-D bby Durvet..(active ingredient: permathrin) can wash her using Adam's flea shampoo for cats and dogs..but dilute it by half..
    rinse and dry very well...then dust.

    best do the others, and treat the coop..
