    As much as I treat my chickens for worms, mites, lice, ect. I had no idea how they could get mites. LOL
    Thanks again,

    Good info and picture. I was wondering the same about mine. I'm paranoid. What do you use to treat for lice, mites and ect. To keep it from becoming an issue? Thanks!

    I use poultry dust on the birds, Sevin dust on the coop/run and around the outside perimeter. When I bathe them(not often) I put a drop of topical flea/tick/lice medicine under a wing.

    Can poultry dust and Sevin dust be found at most feed stores/Ace Hardware?
