I went out this p.m. to do a final check on the chichens and horses. As I was watching the chickens in their pen they seemed to be doing a lot of digging in their feathers with their beaks. I had noticed this the night before also so I went in and checked each bird for 'bugs'. I had a flashlight so I got a pretty good look around the base of the feathers and etc. Did not see anything. Definatley no red mites. Could I be missing something ? I have a red heat lamp above the birds. Could the extra warmth be causing a mite of some sort to become acive ? Want to look again tomorrow night ~ what should I look for. ?
